Special Election Date Set to Fill District 2 Vacancy

Special Election Date Set for District 2 Vacancy

The City of Bowie will hold a Special Election on Monday, March 12, 2018 to fill a vacancy in the District 2 Councilmember seat. The vacancy was created when a majority of District 2 voters supported the recall of Councilmember Diane Polangin in December.

The Special Recall Election took place on December 19, 2017. In that election, 70% of the voters voted “yes” on the question of recalling incumbent Councilmember, Diane Polangin.

According to provisions in the City Charter, following a successful recall initiative, the City must hold another Special Election to fill the vacancy within 60-90 days.

Only voters of District 2 will be eligible to vote in this election. Residents who are interested in filing to run should contact City Clerk Awilda Hernandez at 301-809-3029 or ahernandez@cityofbowie.org. Candidate information can be found at www.cityofbowie.org/election. A candidate for the seat must live in District 2, be a registered voter, and have lived in the City for at least one year. The filing deadline is February 9, 2018.
