1. Primary Election: Tuesday, the polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. for the Maryland Gubernatorial Primary Election. Montgomery Community Media provided candidates in local races the opportunity to record a video statement, which may be found in our Primary Election Voters’ Guide to local county races. On Tuesday, MyMCM will be at polling places across the county to talk with voters. We want to learn what issues are the most important and what voters hope for the future of the county.
