Promptly notify the Montgomery County Elections Administrator in writing of your new address by:
     1. correcting the information on your current voter registration certificate and returning it to the voter registrar; or
     2. completing a voter registration application and check the box for "change"; or

You may be eligible to vote a limited ballot in your new county of residence after moving if:
     1. you were qualified to vote in your former county at the time you moved; and
      2. your registration in the new county is not yet effective.
If you vote a limited ballot, you may vote on all statewide offices and propositions and for all district offices which are common to your new and former counties of residence.
To vote a limited ballot, you must apply and vote by personal appearance with the early voting clerk conducting the election in your new county during the early voting period, which generally begins on the 17th day and ends on the 4th day before an election, or by mail if you are eligible to vote by mail.

Answer

You may continue to vote. Promptly notify the Elections Administrator in writing of the name change following the same steps for change of address. You will receive a new, corrected certificate within 30 days.

Answer

Pursuant to Sec. 13.146(b) of the Election Code, the term "suspense" is used to designate those voters for whom the Montgomery County Elections Administrator does not have a current address. A voter with this designation will be removed from the suspense list once that person has advised the Montgomery County Elections Administrator of his or her current address. Updating the address is important, not only so that our records will be accurate, but also so that the voter is voting in the elections where he or she resides.

Answer

Notify the Elections Administrator's office in writing, and a replacement certificate will be issued to you. You may vote without your certificate.

Answer

Answer

Early voting is really convenience voting. Any Montgomery County registered voter may vote at any early voting location in Montgomery County. See Montgomery County Elections for early voting locations and times.

Answer

Either - whichever you consider your permanent residence. If you are registered in your hometown and will not be in that county on Election Day and during early voting, you may request an Application for Ballot by Mail.

Answer

All polling locations are accessible. Our eSlate voting system is fully accessible and has an audio feature which allows any voter to listen to the ballot.

You are eligible to receive voting assistance if you cannot read or write, or have a physical disability that prevents you from reading or marking the ballot.

Tell the election official that you need help to vote. You do not have to provide proof of your disability.
You may be assisted by:
     •  any person of your choice; or
     •  one election worker during early voting; or
     •  two election workers on Election Day;

You may NOT be assisted by:
     • your employer;
     • an agent of your employer; or
     • an officer or agent of your union.

The person assisting you must read the entire ballot to you, unless you ask to have only parts of the ballot read.
The person assisting you must take an oath that he or she will not try to influence your vote and will mark your ballot as you direct.
If you choose to be assisted by polling place officials, a poll watcher and/or state election inspector present in the polling place may observe the voting process to be sure that the ballot has been marked as you wanted. If you ask to be assisted by a person of your choosing, no one else may watch you vote.

It is illegal for a person assisting you to:
     • mark your ballot in a way other than the way you direct; or
     • tell anyone how you voted; or
     • try to influence your vote;

Interpreters at the polls
If you cannot speak English, or if you communicate only with sign language, you may use an interpreter to help you communicate with election officials. You may select any person of your choice to be your interpreter. If you cannot read the ballot, your interpreter may translate the ballot for you in the voting booth, after taking the Interpreter's Oath.

Curbside voting
If you are unable to physically enter the polling place, you may ask that an election officer bring an eSlate (electronic voting device) to you at the entrance to the polling place or to a car at curbside. After you vote on the eSlate, give it to the election officer, who will re-connect it to the Judge's Booth Controller, and your vote will be counted.

TIP: If you plan to go alone to vote curbside, it is wise to call ahead so election officials will expect you.
