For Immediate Release:  June 7, 2018  


Montgomery County will open eleven Early Voting Centers from June 14 to 21, 2018, from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. Any registered voter, or new Montgomery County resident, may cast a ballot at any one of these centers on the same voting equipment used on Election Day.

Damascus Community Recreation Center, Damascus

Executive Office Building, Rockville

Germantown Community Recreation Center, Germantown

Jane E. Lawton Community Recreation Center, Chevy Chase

Did you miss the voter registration deadline?  During Early Voting you may register to vote the same day you vote.  You must have a valid photo ID and proof of residency to register.  Once you register, you will be issued a ballot.  This opportunity is not available on Election Day – if you’re not registered yet and would like to vote, visit an Early Voting Center between June 14 and 21.  You may not change your party affiliation at this time – this is only for new registrants.

For more information, call 240-777-VOTE, visit , the Maryland State Board of Elections’ website at, or follow the Montgomery County Board of Elections on Facebook or Twitter.

Your Time, Your Voice, Your Vote!
