On Wednesday, February 7 at 7 p.m. in the Town Hall, the Town Council will hold a public forum on the idea of extending participation in Town elections to non-U.S. citizen residents of the Town. As permitted by Maryland law, several nearby communities allow their residents to vote in their local elections regardless of citizenship. Town residents have asked the Council to consider amending our charter similarly to allow non-U.S. citizens who live in the Town to vote in our annual Town elections. This forum will provide an educational opportunity to learn more about the approaches taken by some of our neighboring municipalities, to ask questions, and to share thoughts about our voter qualifications in a moderated discussion. No voter qualification changes will go into effect for the May 2018 election.
