Retirement Community Residents in Silver Spring, MD, Vote Early Today

The following information was sent to us by Mel Tansill:

Riderwood retirement community residents began early Maryland Primary Election voting (see attached photo) today at their campus’ dual county voting precincts.  Half of the 120-acre Riderwood retirement community in Silver Spring is in Montgomery County and half is in Prince George’s County. This makes it a hotbed for politicians, especially during an election year. And it makes the April 3 Maryland Primary Election and the November 6 General Election intriguing.

Riderwood has two separate voting precincts – one in each county – on election days. Nearly 3,000 residents and people from surrounding neighborhoods who are in the two voting precincts vote

Riderwood’s residents seem to relish politics. The residents run their own Democratic and Republican clubs. There is also a resident League of Women Voters group and a resident Voter Information Group that holds registration drives at appropriate intervals throughout the year.  In addition, a resident-run Political Science Lecture Series is held. This series brings in outstanding journalists, diplomats, professors and “think tank” experts to discuss current political and economic issues in the nation and around the world.
