Participation in Voter Registration Activity

Voter registration distributors offer people the opportunity to register to vote, distribute voter registration applications, assist people with completing voter registration applications, and return completed applications to the county election office.

To be a voter registration distributor, you must be 18 years of age or older. You will receive training on how to complete Maryland's voter registration application and ensure that the application is completed and accurate and information about the State's identification requirements. At the conclusion of the training, you must sign an affidavit that you will act according to the training and regulations and will receive a certificate identifying you as a voter registration volunteer.

As a voter registration distributor, you must advise each individual that he or she has the option to return the application personally to the county election office or permit you to return the application on the individual's behalf and must return completed voter registration applications promptly to the county election office. You may not receive compensation on a per registrant basis for voter registration activity.

If you are interested in serving as a voter registration distributor, call your county election office or the State Board of Elections.
