Takoma Park votes in a new mayor and city council every two years. Election Day is November 8, 2022.

Takoma Park city seal The 2022 city election will be conducted by mail with the option of in-person voting on Election Day. If you’re a registered voter — either a registered U.S. citizen voter or a non-citizen or 16- or 17-year-old Takoma Park voter — you should have received a ballot in the mail. You can mail in your ballot or deposit it in a city drop box.

The city election occurs in parallel with the Maryland + Montgomery County election for governor, county executive, county council, and other offices. You vote separately for those offices, via a separate ballot whether by-mail or in-person early or on Election Day.

P.S. As a council member, I introduced 2013 Takoma voting reforms that included 16- and 17-year-old voting in city elections. It was a team effort: I suggested lowering the voting age, and the council went with Councilmember Tim Male’s suggestion we make it 16.
