Candidate Forums for Montgomery County Offices
RCA is pleased cosponsor three nonpartisan forums featuring candidates for County Council and County Executive. Decide which candidates would represent you best, then vote in the primaries on June 24 before choices are narrowed in the fall general elections. Early primary voting takes place June 12 to 19.
Save the dates:
