Board of Elections approves adding mail-in dropboxes at Montgomery College

October 24, 2023

While the Montgomery County Board of Elections voted Oct. 16 to approve the addition of mail-in ballot dropboxes at Montgomery College campuses for the 2024 presidential election, one member opposed the decision, citing college students’ political activity. “College campuses have historically been hotbeds of unrest,” Diane Nash Dillon, a Republican member of the body, said during the Oct. 16 board meeting. “Everybody knows the demographics or as in the political makeup of college campuses are heavily skewed in favor of one party … I’m categorically opposed to placing dropboxes on college campuses.”
