Potomac Brief: Early Voting

Potomac Brief: Early Voting

Early voting starts April 14. For those registered to vote, the Montgomery County Board of Elections is mailing a personalized sample ballot, along with all of the information needed to vote in the 2016 Presidential Election, depending on which political party one is registered with and where one lives. The sample ballot is an 8 ½ x 11 booklet and has information on Early Voting locations on the front cover and Election Day polling place on the back cover.

Review the sample ballot for the following information:

  • The locations of the Montgomery County Early Voting Centers where one may choose to cast a ballot between April 14 and 21;

  • The location of the assigned polling place on Election Day – April 26;

  • Instructions on how to use the new paper based, digital image scan voting system;

  • Directions on how to review the choices prior to casting a ballot; and

  • Pictures of the actual ballot.

To facilitate the voting process, the Board of Elections encourages voters to mark the sample ballot in advance and take it with them.

The county’s Early Voting Centers will be open from Thursday, April 14 through Thursday, April 21, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. During Early Voting, the Board of Elections encourages voters to visit its website – www.777vote.org – to view the wait time scroll bar and for voting locations and information.
