Rockville Residents Will Vote on Lowering Voting Age to 16, Ranked-Choice Voting, and More in Upcoming Election

by MCS Staff

As well as choosing seven members to elect to the city’s Mayor and Council, voters will decide on advisory referenda questions for the City of Rockville’s 2023 election. The questions, if approved by voters, would amend the city charter to:

  • Lower the voting age to 16.
  • Permit noncitizens to vote.
  • Create representative districts.
  • Set term limits.
  • Implement ranked-choice voting.

The amendments are recommendations from the Charter Review Commission. Ballots will be mailed to all registered voters who live within Rockville city limits. All ballots must be received by 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 7. Voters will be able to vote by mail, in person at the two election day vote centers on Nov. 7, or at an election drop box.

Voters will be able to drop off their ballots at boxes inside the Rockville Senior Center, 1150 Carnation Drive, Lincoln Park Community Center, 357 Frederick Ave., and Twinbrook Community and Recreation Center, 12920 Twinbrook Parkway. The boxes will be available during center hours. In addition to a drop box outside City Hall, voters will be able to drop their ballots at a drop box outside Montrose Community Center, 451 Congressional Lane. Both will be available 24/7, beginning in October.
