Every qualified voter of the town is entitled to vote in all town elections, whether or not they are a citizen of the United States.
It is the policy of the Town that all eligible voters shall be provided with an opportunity to vote. Qualified persons may register by universal registration with either Montgomery County or the Town, or may register only with the Town, including residents who are not citizens of the United States, up to and including election day. Voters may register at any time that the Town office or the polls are open as well as at other times or places that the election judges may designate. If a person registers with Montgomery County, that registration must be for a Garrett Park address in order to vote in Town elections. If a registration occurs with the County less than 30 days before the Town election, the information may not reach the Town by election day. In that case, the voter may register again with the Town in order to vote. A person registering with the Town must present documentation of residency, such as a driver’s license, utility bill, or other official document with the resident’s name and a Garrett Park address.
