Voting Districts

Sligo Woods precinct
The bounds of the Sligo Woods neighborhood are identical to the boundaries of our voting precinct, which is #13-42 (sometimes written 13042).  Our polling place is in our original neighborhood school, opened in 1955 as MacDonald Knolls Elementary School and closed in 1976—but the name has come back with the 2018 beginning of the MacDonald Knolls Early Childhood Center.  The building is shared by The Arc, often called Karasik.  Address: 10600 Tenbrook.

All voters in the county may vote for all district races, as well as at-large races.  The five districts are used in the residency requirement for candidates standing for election in the non-at-large races (we are Education District 4, within whose bounds lives Ms. Shebra Evans of Silver Spring).
