Montgomery County Expands Election Day Ballot Drop-Off Box Locations

Jun 01, 2020 02:31PM ● By Teresa Parris

Montgomery County is expanding the number of secure ballot drop-off boxes to help voters meet the 8 p.m. deadline for the June 2 Primary Election, adding five sites across the County, taking the total in the area to 10. The hours of operation and accessibility for each location are listed below. The additional 5 locations were selected based on the areas with the highest numbers of unreturned absentee and mail-in ballots.

Completed mail-in and absentee ballots must be returned by 8 p.m. on Tuesday, June 2. Postmarks do not count. Any voter who has requested a mail-in or absentee ballot, and is concerned they cannot return it by the deadline may also go to their polling place and vote using a provisional ballot. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, polling locations have been consolidated. Voters can find their polling location at www.montcopa.org/voterservices. For public health and safety, please wear a mask. Voting stations and equipment will be cleaned throughout the day, and social distancing guidelines will be implemented.

“We are doing everything that we can to help voters meet the June 2 Primary Election Day deadline by expanding the secure ballot drop-off box locations to 10,” said Kenneth E. Lawrence Jr., Chair, Montgomery County Board of Elections. “The collection boxes we have already established have seen a large number of ballots returned to them on a daily basis. We expect these 5 new locations will be heavily used as well.”

Ballots placed in the secure ballot boxes will be delivered to Voter Services and stamped as received.
