City of Rockville elections are held every two years, at which time the mayor and four council seats are up for election.

They appoint a city manager to oversee the daily operations of the government and implement the policies they've established.

Residents who live within the corporate limits of the city and are registered to vote may vote in City of Rockville elections. Rockville is divided into 10 voting districts. Polls are open on Election Day from 7 a.m. - 8 p.m. For more information, call the City Clerk's office at 240-314-8280.
