Do You or Friends Need Help Getting Unemployment Benefits?
As we all know, the Maryland Department of Labor was not prepared for the current economic crisis. As a result, hundreds of thousands of working people have lost their jobs but not received the benefits they’ve earned. Many have not even had their applications approved yet.
If you or someone you know has been unable to receive unemployment insurance benefits, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 301.858.3141. We will contact the right people in the Department of Labor and do everything we can to get your money ASAP.
June 2nd Maryland Primary
As you may know, because of the virus crisis, the Primary Election was moved to Tuesday, June 2. We are not on the ballot this year, but we want to be sure you have the information you need. We will be voting on presidential nominees and several local judges.
What Races Are on the Ballot?
President, Democratic National Convention Delegates, US House, Circuit Court Judges
Can I Still Register to Vote?
Yes! The deadline to register to vote is Wednesday, May 27. Go to https://voterservices.elections.maryland.gov/OnlineVoterRegistration/InstructionsStep1 to register online. Go to https://voterservices.elections.maryland.gov/VoterSearch to check you voter registration status.
How Do I Vote by Mail?
To protect the health of Maryland voters, the June 2 primary will primarily be a “vote by mail” election. This means the board of elections will automatically mail ballots to all eligible voters. You do not need to ask for a ballot to receive one. You can see the status of your ballot online using the Voter Lookup Tool mentioned in the last section. Voted ballots must be postmarked on or before Tuesday, June 2.
How Do I Vote in Person?
To maintain social distancing, all voters are encouraged to vote by mail. However, if you can’t vote by mail, there will be at least one voting center open in each county in Maryland. In more populous counties, there will be more voting centers. You can visit the voting centers if you didn’t receive a ballot in the mail.
The voting locations will be open on June 2 from 7 am to 8 pm. Click here to see the full list of voting centers on the board of elections website.
How Do I Drop off My Ballot?
Voters who prefer to drop off their ballots can do so at designated ballot drop-off locations from Thursday, May 21, 2020 through Tuesday, June 2, 2020.
