"Vote early, vote often," the saying goes.
The second part still is illegal, but this year, Maryland is giving people an option on the first part.
Voting will be with a touch-screen system, according to the Maryland State Board of Elections.
There will be at least one early-voting polling place in every jurisdiction for the primary and general elections. In Washington County, it will be the county office building at 35 W. Washington St.
Early voting for the primary will take place from Sept. 5 to 9.
The general-election early voting period will be Oct. 31 through Nov. 4.
Voting hours will be 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The state board of elections says the early-voting registration deadline is Aug. 22 for the primary election and Oct. 17 for the general election.
