Maryland Primary Election Day is June 26

Maryland’s Primary Election day is fast approaching!

If you wish to vote in the June 26 Primary Election, you must be registered as either a Democrat or a Republican and you can only vote for the candidates who are registered in the same party as you. If you are affiliated with any other party (Green, Libertarian, etc.) or not affiliated at all (Unaffiliated, Independent) you are not allowed to vote in the Primary.

The deadline to register to vote, or to change your party affiliation, is June 5. 

It’s easy to change your party affiliation in order to vote in the primary, and then change it back again before the General Election. Just visit the Maryland Board of Elections at and click on REGISTER TO VOTE at the top.

It is critical to remember that the Primary Election decides many races in our state, particularly in districts that historically elect only candidates from one party, so the Maryland Catholic Conference is asking all Catholics to please consider voting this June.

The Maryland Catholic Conference has surveyed all candidates for Governor, U.S. Congress and the Maryland General Assembly. Results for all candidates who responded are available at
