Local Leaders Call For White Oak Early Voting Center

Local leaders say there’s a need for an early voting center in White Oak, and they’re calling for the Montgomery County Board of Elections to make it happen.

“Bringing an early voting center to White Oak is really crucial for many of our residents who live in that area, many of whom don’t have access to a vehicle, and the early voting center’s that are the closest to them take over 40 minutes to reach by public transportation in downtown Silver Spring or in Burtonsville,” said Montgomery County Council President Tom Hucker said during a virtual media briefing on Monday.

On Sept. 18., the County Board of Elections will hold a Virtual Public Hearing on potential early voting centers for the 2022 Gubernatorial Elections.

Hucker encourages residents to testify in support of bringing early voting to White Oak and explains why it’s important.
