(A sample ballot contains ALL offices, candidates and questions to be voted on in the upcoming election. The ballot you receive at the polls will only have the offices and questions that pertain to your proper districts.)

Info About Optical Scan Ballots:

Montgomery County uses paper, optical scan style, ballots and voting tabulator machines, which scan and tabulate the ballots cast.

Voting Instructions:

  • Please use the pen provided in the voting booth.
  • When voting, it is important to DARKEN THE OVAL COMPLETELY next to the name of the person for which you want to cast your vote. (DO NOT use an "x", a check mark, or circle the candidates name, these types of marks may not be properly tabulated.)
  • If you are voting for a write-in candidate, be sure to darken the oval next to the write-in candidate line, then write in the name of the candidate.
  • To know how many candidates can be selected for each race, be sure to read the instructions on your ballot, to insure that you do not "overvote" (vote for more candidates than allowed).
  • If you make a mistake, ask the election judge for a new ballot and one will be provided.
  • If you believe you have received an incorrect ballot or have questions, PLEASE ASK THE ELECTION JUDGE BEFORE YOU CAST YOUR VOTE AND PLACE YOUR BALLOT INTO THE VOTE TABULATOR. Once your ballot has been tabulated, you can not be given a new ballot.
  • If you have a question or problem with casting your ballot, please ask your election judge for assistance.

Disabled Voters:

The ES&S AutoMARK® Voter Assist Terminal is breakthrough ballot-marking technology that allows voters with disabilities and other special needs to mark a ballot privately and independently when using an optical scan voting system. Each polling place has an AutoMARK device available to assist visually or physically disabled voters.

The AutoMark Key features include:

  • Sip/puff tube for voters unable to use the touch screen or buttons
  • Audio function allows voters with impaired vision to listen to choices
  • Intuitive user controls
  • Zoom feature enables voters to increase the font size on screen
  • Fully support write-in candidates
  • Marks the ballot for the voter, based on their selection
