2022 Primary Election
Please show up and vote for me, Heath Barnes for State Delegate on June 28, 2022 in the primaries.
an I vote in a party primary election?
Generally, you must be registered with either the Democratic or Republican Party to vote in the primary election. If there are non-partisan offices that are elected in a primary election (i.e., school board), any voter can vote for these offices. Contact your local board of elections.
May I change political parties?
Yes, except after the close of voter registration, until voter registration opens up again after an election.
To change your party affiliation, use Maryland’s Online Voter Registration System (OLVR) or submit a new voter registration application or a written request to your local board of elections.
Do I have to affiliate with a political party?
No, you do not. If you do not select a political party on your voter registration application, you will be “unaffiliated” with any political party. This means that you will generally not be able to vote in party primary elections, but you will be able to vote in any nonpartisan primary elections held in your jurisdiction, such as a primary election to select nominees for the board of education.
