Updated post; 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 26:
More than 50,000 vote-by-mail ballots for the City of Rockville’s election are being delivered this month by the United States Postal Service.
Due to an unexpected information technology issue affecting the ballot tracking system, voters are unable to track the status of their ballot while it is in the mail.
Voters will be able to confirm that their ballot has been received at www.rockvillemd.gov/election. Ballot status will be updated as ballots are processed by the election office.
Ballots were mailed to every registered city voter. If you have not yet received a ballot by mail, contact 240-314-8280 or [email protected].
The voting system used by the City of Rockville is the same system and equipment used by the state of Maryland for state and federal elections. Maryland’s election systems are secure, have built-in redundancies and have been tested for security.
Rockville voters are deciding between two candidates for mayor and 12 candidates for six council seats. Voters also can choose “yes,” “no” or “no opinion” on four nonbinding advisory questions.
Ballots must be received by 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 7. Voters may return their postage-paid ballot by mail, vote in person at two Election Day Vote Centers on Nov. 7, or drop off their ballot at an election drop box.
