REGISTERED VOTERS CAN VOTE IN PERSON BEFORE PRIMARY ELECTION DAY
Registered voters in Frederick County will have the opportunity to vote early before the 2012 Primary Election Day, according to the Frederick County Board of Elections. Voters can choose to vote on any one of six days instead of having only one day to vote.
The Early Voting Center will be set up in the Frederick County Department of Aging/Senior Center, located at 1440 Taney Avenue, Frederick, MD.
The Primary Election will be held on Tuesday, April 3, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Prior to that day, the Early Voting Center will be open on Saturday, March 24, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Sunday, March 25, from Noon to 6 p.m., and Monday through Thursday, March 26 – 29, from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.
The process during early voting is the same as on Election Day. Registered voters who arrive at the Early Voting Center will check in and vote their ballot. Like Election Day, voters will vote on the touch screen voting system which allows voters to touch the screen to make, change, and review selections and cast a ballot.
The Early Voting Center will not be open for voting on the Primary Election Day. On that day, voters must vote at the polling place for the address where they live.
Information about early voting before the General Election will be provided in a future announcement, closer to the election.
