Mail-in Ballot Request Deadline:
TOMORROW, October 20
Voters Must Request a Ballot by 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, October 20
Registered voters seeking to vote by mail or by drop off to an official ballot drop box for the General Presidential Election, must request their ballot from the State Board of Elections by tomorrow: Tuesday, October 20.
Voters requesting a mail-in ballot will not be required to state a reason for voting by mail and all mail-in ballots will be counted. The State Board of Elections mailed all registered voters a Mail-In Ballot application in late August; however, voters can also request a mail-in ballot now in one of the following three ways:
- Online: Access the online application here. You must have a Maryland driver’s license or other MVA issued card to apply online. The online process is also used for voter registration so by using it you will make sure your voter registration is correct. The online application can also be accessed by texting VBM to 77788.
- By Mail: Print out the form in English or Spanish, fill it out, and return by mail, email, fax or in person to the Board of Elections.
- By Phone: Call the Montgomery County Board of Elections, 240-777-8550.
Completed ballots can be returned via USPS or hand delivered to ballot drop boxes, Early Voting Centers and Election Day polling places. The ballot drop-boxes closest to the Village are at the Friendship Heights Village Center (4433 South Park Avenue) and at the Jane E. Lawton Center (4301 Willow Lane).

NOTE: Voters who request that their mail-in ballot be delivered by email, must print the ballot, complete the ballot and return the ballot via USPS or hand delivered to ballot drop boxes, Early Voting Centers and Election Day polling places. Mail-in ballots provided to voters by email will need to be duplicated at the Board of Elections before it can be scanned/counted. Mail-in ballots delivered to voters by regular mail do not need to be duplicated. Therefore, emailed ballots can slow the process.
The Chevy Chase Village Hall will NOT serve as an in-person polling site for the November 3 election; however, Village residents will be able to access early voting between October 26 and November 2 at the nearby Jane E. Lawton Center in the Town of Chevy Chase or voters may vote by mail by requesting a mail-in ballot that can be dropped off at any of the over 40 ballot drop-off box locations across the county.
