Rockville city officials are preparing for the city’s first municipal election in which voters mail their ballots, with the goal of increasing voter participation. The election, which includes mayor and city council races, will be held Nov. 5.
The city council approved the practice in April 2018, joining 22 states that allow voting by mail. The Washington Post reported at the time that Rockville would be the first city in Maryland to do so.
Under the system, registered voters who live within the city limits of Rockville will be mailed ballots in early October. Voters can fill out ballots and mail them back or deliver them to City Hall.
