The 2014 General Election begins 10 a.m. on Thursday, October 23, 2014 for Frederick County Voters. This election ushers in a new era for Frederick County politics and governance. Frederick County voters will elect the county’s first county executive and county council as the county moves to a charter government.

Early voting begins Thursday, October 23rd in Frederick County. Registered voters in Frederick County will be allowed to vote early before the 2014 General Election. Early Voting occurs October 23 through October 30, 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. each day.

There are three Early Voting locations in Frederick County, and voters can use any of the three centers to cast their vote.

The first Early Voting Center will be set up in the Frederick County Department of Aging/Senior Center, located at 1440 Taney Avenue, Frederick, Md. (Early voting operations will not disrupt regularly scheduled events at the Senior Center, but seniors will be encouraged to sign up in advance for certain activities.)

The second Early Voting Center will be set up at the Thurmont Regional Library, located at 76 East Moser Road, Thurmont, Md.

The third Early Voting Center will be set up at the Urbana Regional Library, located at 9020 Amelung Street, Frederick, Md.

The General Election will be held on Tuesday, November 4, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Early Voters cannot cast an absentee ballot or vote on Election Day.

The process during early voting is the same as on Election Day. Registered voters who arrive at any Early Voting Center will check in and vote their ballot. Like Election Day, voters will vote on the touchscreen voting system which allows voters to touch the screen to make, change, and review selections and cast a ballot.

The Early Voting Centers will not be open for voting on the General Election Day. On those days, voters must vote at the polling place for the address where they live.
