All about voting – updated!

I am running for MCPS Board of Education from District 1; but did you know that no matter you live in Montgomery County, you can vote in my race?  The Board of Elections has publishes a sample ballot tool  online, and if you look, you will see that no matter you live in Montgomery County, my name will be on your ballot. I am the only Maria on the ballot, and certainly the only Maria Blaeuer!   On your ballot, I am the first name in the first Board of Education district. All of this information (and so much more) is available at the Montgomery Co. Board of Elections!


Are you registered to vote?  Not sure?  Maryland allows you to look up your voter registration so you can check!  Do you need to register to vote?  You can register to vote online too!


You do not need to give a reason to vote by mail, which is sometimes called “absentee voting”.  Any registered voter may apply for an absentee ballot using this form.  You can even request that your ballot be sent to you electronically. If you do, be sure to return your ballot by mail or in person to the Board of Elections in Gaithersburg. If you do not return it, you may only cast a provisional ballot at the polls or on Election Day. Absentee and provisional ballots cast by eligible voters are all counted before the results of the election are certified. More questions?  Look at these FAQs from the Board of Elections!
