Mail-In Voting:
Important Note: A recent change in the law requires the State Board of Elections and each local board of elections to refer to absentee ballots as "mail-in ballots" and absentee voting as "mail-in voting." Please note that this change in terminology does NOT change the process of mail-in voting.

Any registered voter may vote using Mail-In Voting.  Mail-In Voting applications can be submitted at any time.    Applications received by the Town before ballots are available will be held, and ballots will be sent to the voter as soon as they are available.  If you would like someone to drop off your Mail-In Voting application, you will need to fill out a Designation of Agent form.  This form will allow another person to drop off your application, and, if available, pick up your ballot to drop it off to you.  Mail-In ballot applications can be mailed to or dropped off at the Town House, 7547 Main Street, or emailed to town@sykesville.net.  Please ensure that writing is legible.

Ballots must be returned to the Town in the provided envelope.  If you lose your envelope or any other part of the mail-in ballot, please contact the Town right away.

There will be a ballot drop-dox located at the Town House, 7547 Main Street, that is accessible 24/7 until the close of polls on May 2 at 8 PM.  Ballots must be received by the Town by the close of polls on May 2 at 8 PM.  The Town is not responsible for any delays in delivery of ballots due to the United States Postal Service.

If you have any questions, please contact the Town Clerk, Kerry Kavaloski, at town@sykesville.net or 410-795-8959.
