2014 Maryland General Election

Hi Every One,

 

Thanks to the National Federation of the Blind and U.S. District Judge
Richard Bennett, the Maryland State Board of Elections' online ballot
marking tool will be available to all Maryland voters with disabilities who
wish to vote by absentee ballot! However, before you can use the online
ballot marking tool, you must first request that the ballot be delivered to
you by email.

 

Following are steps to request email delivery of your absentee ballot:

1.     Use the accessible online voter registration and absentee ballot
request form at
https://voterservices.elections.maryland.gov/OnlineVoterRegistration/Instruc
tionsStep1
<https://voterservices.elections.maryland.gov/OnlineVoterRegistration/Instru
ctionsStep1> . You must have a Maryland ID or driver's license issued by 
ctionsStep1> MVA
to use this form. In Step 9 of this form, be sure to indicate that you want
an absentee ballot for the 2014 Gubernatorial General Election and that you
want delivery through email.

2.     OR, complete the absentee ballot application for 2014 elections at
http://www.elections.state.md.us/voting/documents/2014_Absentee_Ballot_Appli
cation_English.pdf
<http://www.elections.state.md.us/voting/documents/2014_Absentee_Ballot_Appl
ication_English.pdf> . This form is an inaccessible PDF. A Spanish version
of this form may be found at
http://www.elections.state.md.us/voting/documents/2014_Absentee_Ballot_Appli
cation_Spanish.pdf
<http://www.elections.state.md.us/voting/documents/2014_Absentee_Ballot_Appl
ication_Spanish.pdf> . It is also an inaccessible PDF. Be sure to indicate
that you want your absentee ballot delivered by email.

3.     OR, go to your local board of elections and complete and turn in your
absentee ballot application there. Be sure to indicate that you want your
absentee ballot delivered by email.

4.     Your absentee ballot request form must be submitted by October 31,
2014, if you want to have your ballot delivered by email and use the online
ballot marking tool.

 

All registered voters in Maryland are eligible to vote by absentee ballot.
The online ballot marking tool allows voters with disabilities to mark their
ballot privately and independently using their own access technology. The
computer that is used to mark the ballot must be connected to a printer.
Once the ballot is marked it must be printed out and mailed to your local
board of elections. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the
expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles
between blind people and our dreams. You can have the life you want;
blindness is not what holds you back.
