I didn’t receive my mail-in ballot. What should I do?
Call the Montgomery County Board of Elections at (240) 777-VOTE (8683) as soon as possible. They can sort it out and let you know how to proceed.
I requested a mail-in ballot but want to vote in person. Can I?
Yes! But! You will need to fill out a provisional ballot (to make sure you didn’t also send in your mail-in ballot).
My mail-in ballot arrived but the envelope and/or ballot was damaged or destroyed. What can I do?
Call the Montgomery County Board of Elections at (240) 777-VOTE (8683) as soon as possible.
My mail-in ballot still shows are “received” when I check the status of my ballot. When will it move to “accepted”?
The Montgomery County Board of Elections has confirmed that mail-in ballots won’t move to “accepted” until at least Election Day. They do not start counting ballots until then. Be patient, it could take several days after the election to count them all.
