For Immediate Release:  June 4, 2014


Early voting starts June 12. Not sure where to vote or what choices will be on the ballot? Check your mail. If you are registered to vote, the Montgomery County Board of Elections has mailed you a personalized sample ballot, along with all of the information you will need to vote in the 2014 Gubernatorial Primary Election, depending on which political party you are registered with and where you live.

Review your sample ballot carefully for the following information:

  • The locations of the nine Early Voting Centers where you may choose to cast your ballot between June 12 and June 19;
  • The location of your assigned polling place on Election Day;
  • Instructions on how to use the Touchscreen voting machine;
  • Directions on how to review your choices prior to casting a ballot;
  • Pictures of the actual ballot as it will appear on the Touchscreen voting machine;

Take the time to carefully read this information so you are familiar with it before you get to your polling place. To facilitate the voting process, the Board of Elections encourages you to mark your sample ballot in advance and take it with you – it saves you time.

The County’s nine Early Voting Centers will be open from Friday, June 12 through Thursday, June 19, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. To avoid lines during Early Voting, the Board of Elections encourages voters to visit our website – – to view the wait time scroll bar and for voting information.
