Maryland is becoming the first state in the nation to make absentee ballots available online. The University of Maryland's Center for American Politics and Citizenship is making the ballots available in a partnership with the Maryland State Board of Elections.

Ballots will be available on the Maryland Elections Center Web site. The online ballot system automatically creates a document, including the ballot file for the voter, instructions and an oath of absentee voting. It assigns a security number and creates a personalized mailing label with a barcode to guard against fraud.
