Going out of town? Here’s how to get your ballot

If you will be near a mailbox, we can send your ballot to you by completing the alternate address form by Sept. 20.

If you are going on vacation, you can take your ballot with you and mail back from anywhere from within the U.S. using the postage paid return envelope. 

If you are moving within Rockville city limits, you must update your address on your voter registration by Sept. 20. Ballots will not be automatically forwarded to a new address by using a U.S. Postal change of address.
