Voters may request a change in polling place for two reasons – accessibility concerns or religious principles.
Accessibility Concerns: For the 2012 Presidential Elections, all Montgomery County polling places are compliant with Maryland State Board of Elections accessibility guidelines.
Religious Principles: If you are assigned a polling place located in a religious institution, and entering that site conflicts with your religious beliefs and practices, you may request to be relocated to a nearby polling place. You may obtain a reassignment request form from the Maryland State Board of Elections’ web site at http://www.elections.state.md.us/pdf/Request_for_Accessible_Polling_Place.pdf, by calling N. Christine Rzeszut at 240-777-8585, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. The request must be received by 9 p.m. October 16, 2012, for the Primary Election.
If a satisfactory substitute polling place is not available voting at an Early Voting Center or by absentee ballot are alternatives. Early Voting will be held from October 27 through November 1, 2012, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. (Sunday from 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.) at five Montgomery County locations. For information on specific locations please visit our website at www.777vote.org. Applications for absentee ballots to be mailed must be submitted to the Board of Elections by 4:30 p.m., October 30, 2012.
