Removal of Deceased Family Member from Voting Rolls

Maryland law requires the Board of Elections (BOE) to receive an official death notice before removing someone from the voting rolls. To have someone removed, please provide a letter stating the name and date of birth for the deceased and the relationship of the requestor to the deceased; along with a copy of the death certificate. Make sure that the letter has been signed. A notice from the newspaper is not an acceptable replacement for the actual death certificate. The death certificate does not need to be certified; it may be a photocopy. The above information may be mailed, faxed or sent via email (with a copy of the death certificate included with the email). Fax number: 240.777.8600, include: "Attention Tia".
