New Voting Equipment in Frederick County

Starting with the June 13, 2017 Democratic Party and Republican Party Primaries, Frederick County voters will be using new voting equipment.  The new voting system will involve voters receiving a paper ballot on which to make their choices and then insert their voted ballot into an optical scan voting machine.  The optical scan machine will read the voter's choices and deposit their voted ballot in a secure ballot bin.  The results will be tabulated by the optical scan machine after the polls close.  Each precinct polling place will be equipped with individual privacy booths on tables with chairs for each voter to vote their ballot.  Please go to the Voting Machine Instructions Page on this web site to see more detailed instructions on marking your ballot.
