🗳️ Sept. 17th: Blair HS PTSA ‘Voter Education’ Virtual Event with the Montgomery County Board of Election

On Thursday, September 17, 2020 from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm, The Blair High School PTSA is hosting a virtual ‘Voter Education’ meeting with Dr. Gilberto Zelaya, Community Engagement/Public Information Officer of the Montgomery County Board of Elections (BOE).

Dr. Zelaya will present a Zoom Session on how the November 2020 General Election is different and what to expect when voting. He will discuss:

  • How to make sure that you are registered to vote… and if you aren’t – how and when you may register
  • How to obtain a mail ballot so that you don’t need to vote in-person (Alert: Ballots are not being sent automatically. Mail Ballot Requests must be *in* the Montgomery County Board of Elections by October 20, 2020 or the BOE can’t assure that you will get your ballot in time).
  • How to complete your ballot (this is technical… not political)
  • How to submit your ballot: by mail or at the secure drop sites
  • Voting in-person: early voting and November 3, 2020

We hope that you are able to attend! If you have any event questions, please contact the Blair HS PTSA President (president@blairptsa.org).

Note: Blair PTSA is a non-partisan organization. This forum is about the election process, not particular candidates or parties.
