The new Delegate District 42C (located in eastern Carroll County) is now a reality after the Maryland Court of Appeals rejects the challenges to the new map of General Assembly districts.
Here are a number of links with information on what happened yesterday:

As of the morning of April 14th there appear to be no candidates that have filed to run for Delegate in District 42C. Hopefully that changes today.
An interactive version of the legislative map is available here.
I will keep an eye on the Maryland Board of Election website and any announcements on social media from candidates.
Speaking of the Board of Elections website, I will also keep an eye out for them updating the site with the redistricting changes putting candidates at all levels in the correct districts.
Here are some helpful links for Carroll County residents looking for information:

Note: It is possible that these links may change after the State Board of Elections updates their site…so that first link to all candidates might be the best one in the long run.
