PurposeTo conduct county, state and federal elections, including registration of qualified voters and all activity related to the maintenance of eligible voter lists in Carroll County.
ServiceRegistration with the Carroll County Board of Elections by a voter who resides in a municipality located within the county is deemed registered for elections in the municipality. The actual conduct of municipal elections is still the responsibility of the municipalities. QUALIFICATIONS FOR REGISTRATION: 1. Must be a U.S. Citizen; 2. Must be a Maryland resident; 3. Be at least 16 years old * You may register to vote if you are at least 16 years old but cannot vote unless you will be at least 18 years old by the next general election; 4. Not be under guardianship for mental disability or if you are, you have not been found by a court to be unable to communicate a desire to vote; 5. Not have been convicted of buying or selling votes; 6. Not have been convicted of a felony, or if you have, you have completed serving a court-ordered sentence of imprisonment, including any term of parole or probation for the conviction. Giving false information to obtain voter registration is perjury and punishable by a fine of up to $1000, or by imprisonment for up to five years, or both. Citizens wishing to register to vote or to request an absentee ballot may do so by calling or going to the Board of Elections office; both forms are also available on the website. The Board of Elections has several programs: voter registration, election worker, absentee, petition, election management, candidacy and campaign finance, street management and voting system maintenance. All programs are critical to conducting successful elections. The office assists the public with inquires about becoming a Notary Public and information on a variety of scholarships available through the State of Maryland. Also assists with questions regarding Elected Officials and the Governor's Office. Statistical information on past elections can be found on the website.
