Updating Your Registration

How do I update my name and address?

You can use Maryland's Online Voter Registration System (OLVR) to update your name and address or you can notify the local board of elections where you currently live if your voter registration information has changed. If you complete a change of address form at the MVA, this information will be sent to your local board of elections for processing, unless you indicate that you do not want to change your voter registration information. You can also send changes on a voter registration application or on any signed written notice.

For the 2020 Presidential General Election, you can also update your address during early voting. While you can change your address during early voting, we encourage you to make this change before the close of voter registration. Your voting process will be quicker if you update it before this deadline. If you can't do it before the election, go to an early voting center in the county where you live. An election official will process your change of address.

If you do not receive a Voter Notification Card with your updated information three weeks after you submit information, you should contact the local board of elections where you now live to ensure that your records are up-to-date. You can also verify whether the local board of elections has your new information by visiting our voter service website.

What should I do if I move to another county within the State or to Baltimore City?

You can use Maryland's Online Voter Registration System (OLVR) or immediately provide your new address to the local board of elections in your new jurisdiction.
