Today is the last day to register to vote in Maryland

Today—Tuesday, Oct. 16—is the last day to register to vote in Maryland before Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 6.

Johns Hopkins has partnered with TurboVote, a free online service that keeps track of the voter registration regulations for all 50 states. Register to vote, get election reminders, and receive absentee ballots by filling out TurboVote's simple online form.

Students who have missed the deadline to register in their home states still have time to register as Maryland residents. The deadline to register online in Maryland is 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 16.

If you are registered to vote in Maryland and know you are going to be too busy on election day to vote in person at the Waverly Branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library—the local polling place for Homewood students—you can vote via absentee ballot, but it must be requested by 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 30, and postmarked by Tuesday, Nov. 6. An absentee ballot party is being planned for noon to 4 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 26, on the Keyser Quad, where students will be able to put a stamp on their ballots and hand them in for delivery.

Have questions about registration, voting, or seeking information about your ballot? Visit the Center for Social Concern Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., to speak to someone about informational tools and resources from now until Election Day on Nov. 6.
