Alternate Polling Places Available For the 2012 Presidential Elections

The following information was sent to us by Marjorie Roher:

Voters may request a change in polling place for two reasons – accessibility concerns or religious principles.

 

Accessibility Concerns:  For the 2012 Presidential Elections, all Montgomery County polling places are compliant with Maryland State Board of Elections accessibility guidelines.

 

Religious Principles:  If you are assigned a polling place located in a religious institution, and entering that site conflicts with your religious beliefs and practices, you may request to be relocated to a nearby polling place.  You may obtain a reassignment request form from the Maryland State Board of Elections’ web site at http://www.elections.state.md.us/pdf/Request_for_Accessible_Polling_Place.pdf, by calling N. Christine Rzeszut at 240-777-8585, or by e-mail at nancy.rzeszut@montgomerycountymd.gov.  The request must be received by 9 p.m. March 13, 2012, for the Primary Election.

 

If a satisfactory substitute polling place is not available voting at an Early Voting Center or by absentee ballot are alternatives.  Early Voting will be held from March 24 – 29, 2012, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. (Sunday from 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.) at five Montgomery County locations.  For information on specific locations please visit our website at www.777vote.org.  Applications for absentee ballots to be mailed must be submitted to the Board of Elections by 4:30 p.m., March 27, 2012.  For information on absentee voting, call 240-777-8550, or e-mail, absentee@montgomerycountymd.gov.
