Drop boxes and mail in ballots are a way to vote in 2020 in Maryland and now starting at 7 a.m. Monday, early voting will be available.

This is nothing new for Maryland voters, we have been doing early voting for a decade now. 80 early voting sites are set to start taking your in-person ballets through November 2.

"It's certainly getting people an opportunity to vote and to take advantage of it. So, there can't be many excuses if you don't vote."

Health protocols will be left to local sites. So, bringing a mask should assure you will have no problems.

Becky Bass has waited to vote until early voting. She is going to vote when it's good for her.

"I'm gonna probably do the early voting. As soon as the poles open up, I believe I'm going to head over and wait it out on a day I don't have the kids."

Early voting will work just like election day; all you do is check in and vote.

There will be election judges and officials at every location and if you haven't registered to vote yet, no problem, they can take care of that during early voting.

To register, go to a voting center in the jurisdiction where you live and bring a document that verifies your address, like a Maryland driver’s license or ID card. A paycheck, bank statement, utility bill or a government document with your name and current address also will work.

Election officials say all of our voting methods are secure from outside interference.
