Election Day in Washington Grove will be Saturday, May 9. Voting will be held in McCathran Hall from 4:00 until 7:00. Elections are followed by the annual Town Meeting. Open this year will be two seats on the Town Council (three-year terms) and the office of Mayor (one-year term). Candidates for Council and Mayor must be qualified voters of the Town. Council nominees must have resided in Town for at least one year immediately preceding their election, and nominees for Mayor two years.
Nominations must be submitted in writing to the Board of Supervisors of Elections. This is most easily done through the Town Office. Nominations require the signature of two qualified voters as nominators, as well as an acceptance by the nominee. The deadline for nominations is April 13.
Qualified voters are registered to vote in Montgomery County at a Town address. You can check your current voter registration at: http://voterservices.elections.maryland.gov/VoterSearch
