In support of this mission, we are committed to:

  • Encouraging citizen awareness of, and participation in, the election process;
     

  • Utilizing community resources as a vehicle for publicity and voter education.

The Board is composed of five members each serving a term of four years.  The members are appointed by the Governor, with the advice and consent of the State Senate, from lists proposed by the County Central Committees of the two major political parties.

The Board of Elections is responsible for the planning and supervision of all County, State and Federal Elections held in Washington County, as well as the City of Hagerstown.  Elections are administered using the Maryland Constitution, Registration and Election Laws of Maryland and Title 33 of the Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR).
