2020 General Election Voter Information -- November 3, 2020

Ballots will not be mailed automatically to voters for the November 3, 2020 election. Instead, the State is mailing applications for mail-in ballots to all registered voters in Maryland, at their addresses on record. Many Town residents may already have received these applications. However, if you have not yet received yours and you would like to make a request for a mail-in ballot, you may visit the Mail-in Ballot Request page on the Maryland State Board of Elections website. You must provide your complete information to verify your voter registration before a ballot can be mailed to you.

If you had already requested a ballot online, you can check the status of your ballot request here.

When applying for a ballot, choose to receive your ballot by mail. The other types (internet, to be printed out at home, or fax) are only recommended for overseas voters and voters with disabilities. These other types require a bipartisan team of poll workers, or Election Judges, to review your ballot and hand copy your choices before your votes can be counted.

If you request a ballot, please vote as soon as possible using that ballot. Postage is prepaid, so you can return it by mail or at a Board of Elections drop box. Voted ballots will also be accepted in the polling room at Early Voting Centers and Election Day Vote Centers.

Official Ballot Drop Boxes will be installed at the Early Voting Centers by October 1, 2020.  The Lawton Recreation Center is an Early Voting Center.  A full list of locations and when they will be installed can be viewed here.

Montgomery County’s 11 Early Voting Centers will be open Monday, October 26 through Election Day, November 3. Additional Vote Centers will open at the 25 MCPS High Schools on Election Day. Voting hours will be 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at all locations.
