Voter Registration II

The deadline is October 14th.

Please see our previous post for mailing addresses and links to the necessary forms.

Here are some additional notes:

Verification

Are you verified? Check here.

If your application could not be verified, then you may need to bring one of the following with you when you go to vote:
current and valid photo identification (a Maryland driver's license or MVA-issued ID card
another identifying government document
current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck

They want paperwork that verifies your name and address. Rather like getting a library card. We ask for the same thing.

If you were not verified, how can you find your polling place? Try this.

Change of address

Remember - if you have changed your address or name, you must notify the Board of Elections. Maryland law requires you to notify the elections office of these changes within 30 days. We have change of address forms at the library. Or you can just write out the infomation, sign and send it in to the Board, or resubmit a registration application form.

(Note: you are also supposed to inform the libraries where you have cards if you change your address. Please do so.)

Absentee Ballots

Absentee ballot applications must be received, not postmarked, actually received, by October 28th. Print the application, sign it, and mail it to the Board of Elections.

Our Precincts

You can find your own by doing the verification or address check. Curious as to where the others are?

Butterflies

Have you visited the living butterfly show at Brookside Gardens? This weekend will be your last chance this year. Early Monday morning, each drowsy butterfly will be placed in an individual glassine envelope and taken downtown to the butterfly pavilion at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, to live out the last week or so of life.

The Brookside show includes butterflies from North America, Costa Rica and Asia. Yes, even Blue Morphos. (Have you seen the movie?)

Be very careful where you step as some of the butterflies bask in the sun on the stone floor.

The Takoma Park Horticultural Club and the Silver Spring Garden Club are sponsors this year.

Brookside: adults $5; children 3-12 $4 (children 2 or under free, but no strollers)
Smithsonian: adults $6; children 2-12 $5
