Ballot Drop Boxes Available in Montgomery County for 2020 General Election

Montgomery County is offering several ways to drop off mail-in ballots for the 2020 election. For those who request a mail-in-ballot, one option for returning the ballot is by placing it in one of the county’s secure ballot drop boxes.

Montgomery County Board of Elections says, “Ballot drop off boxes are monitored and secured by trusted election officials. Ballots are retrieved from the boxes at least twice daily by election officials.”

Several ballot drop boxes are now available; others will be installed within the upcoming weeks. To return a ballot drop box, make sure the ballot is completed, the oath on the envelope is signed, the envelope is sealed, and then drop the ballot into the box through the rain flap.

Once a drop box is made available it will continue to be open through Election Day, Nov. 3. Ballots must be dropped off by 8 p.m. on Nov. 3.
