Polls are open on Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sample ballots were mailed out in October to all registered voters.  The Montgomery County Board of Elections encourages all registered voters to cast a ballot and provides the following suggestions.

  • Know your polling place. If not sure, check your sample ballot, visit or call the Board of Elections at 240.777.VOTE
  • Avoid peak polling hours. The Board of Elections suggests late morning or mid-afternoon hours typically are not crowded.
  • Bring a sample ballot to the polling place. Make voting decisions prior to arriving at the polls.
  • Bring ID to the polling place. First-time voters in the county may be required to show identification such as a driver’s license or official document including name and address.
  • Election officials are available to answer questions at the polls. The Board of Elections encourages voters to ask for assistance.
  • The ballot is available in both English and Spanish. Voters may also bring their own interpreter to their poll to help with the voting process.

For more information, call 240.777.VOTE, visit, or the Maryland State Board of Elections’ website at,
