#MoCoVotesMCM 2020 General Election

The Presidential General Election takes place Nov. 3, 2020. Early voting will be available at 11 early voting centers in Montgomery County from Oct. 26 to Nov. 2.

Montgomery Community Media’s look at the local races can be found here. We have candidate statements from the school board, circuit court judge, and U.S. Congress races. Each candidate was invited to make a brief video statement.

Voters will cast their ballot by mail or in-person during early voting and on election day.

The Board of Elections (BOE) is encouraging voters to vote by mail to prevent community spread of the coronavirus. Unlike the primary election, ballots will not automatically be mailed to all registered voters. However, registered voters were mailed an application to get a vote-by-mail ballot and need to return the completed application to the BOE by Tuesday, Oct. 20. Anyone who did not receive an application can request one online here.

Mail-in ballots must be returned by Nov. 3. Election officials encourage voters to mail the ballots no later than Oct. 27 to give the Postal Service time to deliver them. Ballots may also be returned to any of the 42 drop boxes located throughout the county.

Early voting takes place from Oct. 26 through Nov. 2 at 11 early voting centers in the county. Residents who missed the Oct. 13 deadline to register online may register to vote in person at any of the early voting centers.

On election day, voting in person will take place at the early voting centers, public high schools, and several additional locations. Voters may vote at any of the locations on election day.
