The election will be held at Perryville Town Hall in the Town Hall Meeting Room on May 11, 2020 from 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. The meeting room is located at 515 Broad Street, Perryville, MD 21903 (park behind the building and enter the ADA ramp door). We will be cleaning and sanitizing multiple times during the day and ensuring that there are no more than 10 people in the meeting room at any given time. 

The Absentee Ballot Application is available for download as a file attachment below. This is an application for an absentee ballot; once received and processed, the Absentee Ballot will be mailed to you.  Please note: In order to process the absentee ballot by mail, the application must be received at the Town Hall main office during normal business hours listed on the administration tab of this website by April 30, 2021. Please read the form for additional instructions. You can return the application by mail (again, it must be received by April 30) or, to return the application in person, bring to the Town Hall main office by May 10, 2021 (at the Broad Street entrance).


The voting booths will be set up in the Town Hall meeting room (as is typical); the door to the meeting room will remain open so that no one will have to touch the door handle to enter or exit. The election judges will be in the meeting room but separated and wearing gloves and masks. The Town is planning to put up clear plastic (sneeze screens) in front of the election judges. Registered voters will be required to wear face coverings upon entering the meeting room to vote and social distancing will be in place. Registered voters will be given a pen for their individual use and are to place it in a container when finished prior to using the voting machines. After placing their vote the equipment will be wiped down in between voters and the town will provide hand sanitizer. We will control the number of people going into the meeting room by setting up a line outside with tape markers 6' apart for registered voters to stand in line. No one will be allowed to wait on the ADA ramp (the line will start at the end of the ramp and continue to the right side of the building in designated areas).
