General Election

The General Election will take place as scheduled on November 3, 2020, with early voting centers and all polling locations open. In addition, every voter will be sent an absentee ballot request application to facilitate voting by mail. Early voting, absentee voting by mail, and voting at off-peak times are encouraged in order to stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Further details will be available from the Board of Elections once they are determined.

MD Attorney General Brian Frosh criticized this plan. He argues that the state should send out ballots, as it did for the primary. He said, “We cannot overstate the devastating consequences likely to result if the State of Maryland does not plan now to mail every voter a ballot for the 2020 Presidential General Election.”

 “That is what the Maryland Association of Elections Officials, representing every single one of our state’s 24 jurisdictions, wrote to Governor Hogan on July 6th.”

How to vote by mail on Nov. 3

Unlike the June primary, mail-in (absentee) ballots will not be sent to all residents prior to the Nov. 3 election. Instead, all residents will be sent an application which they need to fill out and return to the Board of Elections. The Board will then send you your ballot.
You can apply for your vote-by-mail ballot application NOW. Check the “Presidential General Election” box. Go to:
The tone-deaf decision on the election was made by Gov. (and presidential wanna-be) Hogan, despite the advice of his county Boards of Election and many precinct chairs. He advertises himself as the “new face of the Republican Party.” But Hogan constantly uses the right-wing, Republican play-book. He has moved to voter suppression in this time of Covid, as he continues to pander to the mainstream Republican Party.
The General Election will take place as scheduled on November 3, 2020, with early voting centers and all polling locations open if they can find poll workers. Early voting and voting at off-peak times are encouraged in order to stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Any changes will be available from the Board of Elections once they are determined and will be included in the “Donkey Dispatch.”
Biden’s position is clear: “No American should ever have to choose between staying healthy and exercising their fundamental right to vote during a pandemic.” While President Trump, Hogan and the GOP are doing everything they can to stop vote-by-mail efforts, Joe Biden is advocating for the expansion of vote-by-mail.
