SAMPLE BALLOT: The Harford County Election Office mails a sample ballot out to every registered voter prior to the 2012 Presidential Primary and General Election. The sample ballot will give you an opportunity to review the candidates and questions. You can mark the sample ballot, bring it with you to the polls on election day and use it as your guide.
VOTING HOURS: The polls are open to the public from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m on Election Day.
WHERE YOU VOTE: Your voting location is determined by the election district and precinct of the residential address on your voter registration record. Election laws require that you keep your address up to date with the Election Office. Your voting location is listed on your voter's card.
ALTERNATE VOTING LOCATION: If the polling place assigned to an elderly or disabled voter is not structurally barrier free, a voter may request, in writing, a reassignment by the local election board. Requests must be received not later than the close of registration for the election.
If you have any questions about where you vote or whether your registration card is up to date, call the Harford County Election Office at 410-638-3565, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
