Deadline to register to vote or update your registration is June 3rd!

“People are voting for the kind of country they want to live in, and there are different views about what kind of country we should have.” — Jonathan Haidt

Without question, that applies to our county — Frederick County — as well. What kind of a county do you want to live in?

It is important to be informed. It is invaluable to be involved. And it is essential to be able to vote.

The Primary Election in Frederick County (and throughout Maryland) is only six weeks away, on June 24, 2014

Early Voting for the Primary Election begins twelve days sooner, from Thursday, June 12, 2014 through Thursday, June 19, 2014.

If you are not registered to vote, please register. If you know a family member or friend who is not registered, please encourage them to register…and to vote.
