Note: In the 2020 General Election, the Montgomery County Charter was amended by the voters to require the County to be divided into seven Council Districts for the purpose of electing seven district and four at-large members of the Council. The County was previously divided into five districts. This redistricting may affect candidates who file early and before the redistricting has been completed.
