If you've made an error or wish to change the selection, you can request a new ballot.

Submitting your Ballot

To be counted, your ballot must be received by 8 p.m. on Election Day. Be sure to mail your ballot ahead of time to account for postal delivery time. To avoid mailing time, you can always drop off your ballot in a secured drop box anytime at Rockville City Hall or Montrose Community Center, or vote in-person on Election Day at Rockville City Hall or Thomas Farm Community Center. Postmarks do not count.

Once submitted, your vote is final.

A trusted person can return your ballot to City Hall if you are unable. You will need to complete and sign the designated agent form.
