GENERAL FEE SCHEDULE FOR THE BOARD OF ELECTIONS

 

The general fee schedule is based on Title 14.02.07, Public Information Requests, of the Code of Maryland Regulations effective December 4, 1995.

 

  • Copies. When copies are made for an applicant by the office staff of the State Board of Elections or a local board, the cost per copy is $ .25 per page plus $17.37 per hour for any copying that requires more than 10 minutes of the employee's time. However, when records are not susceptible to photocopying (for example, punch cards, magnetic tapes, blueprints, and microfilm), the charge for reproducing the record will be based on available services and actual cost.

     

     

  • Certification of Copies. When a person requests that a copy of a record be certified, an additional cost of $1.00 per page for agency certification of a record as being a true copy of the original shall be charged.

     

If the fees for copies, printouts, photographs, or certified copies of any record are specifically prescribed by a law other than the Act, the specific fee contained in that law shall determine the amount charged for that record.

If the office staff is unable to copy a record within the office, he/she shall make arrangements for the prompt reproduction of the record at public or private facilities outside the office. The office staff shall collect from the applicant a fee based on actual cost.

SAMPLE BALLOT

A Sample Ballot is mailed to all registered voters in Montgomery County approximately one week before early voting begins for each Primary and General Election. The sample ballot is the ballot style the voter is required to vote for the election. The ballot style is based on the voter's residence address of record for both Primary and General Elections and, in addition, for Primary Elections only, the party affiliation of record. LARGE-TYPE SAMPLE BALLOTS ARE AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. An online sample ballot is available as part of the Voter Lookup service of the State Board of Elections.

POLLING PLACE

 

The Board of Elections designates a polling place for every precinct. Where possible, the polling place is in the precinct and accessible. A registered voter is assigned a polling place based on residence information provided by the voter.

The request must be in writing and made no later than the close of registration (fifth Monday before an election). The reassigned polling place has the same ballot style as that of the initially assigned polling place.

     

     

  • Polling Place Lists - Two lists, polling place names in alphabetical sequence and polling place precinct numbers in numerical sequence, are available free of charge.
