Happy 4th of July Carroll County. We are just 72 hours from the beginning of Early Voting in Maryland for the 2022 Primary Election.

I have been tracking the total number of mail-in ballots (county wide) for a while (Mid June article and early July article) and a local candidate running for Board of Education (Steve Whisler) provided me the following data he obtained from the Carroll County Board of Elections concerning mail-in ballots broken out by district.

This information is important for races as mail-in ballot canvasing will not begin until July 21st (two days after the primary) and many races may not be fully decided until all of the mail-in ballots are counted.

Here is the information regarding requested mail-in ballots shared with the Carroll County Observer:

A few notes about the mail-in ballot information above:

  1. In each local district above (except for Commissioner District 3) the only candidates are Republican. So Democrat and Independent votes will not play a factor in the local contested Commissioner, State Senate or State Delegate races.
  2. Everyone can vote in the Board of Education race…so knowing that is important (although it is pretty easy to predict which six candidates will move forward through the Primary)
  3.  Obviously the focus of The Observer is on the local races…but Democrats and Republican votes for Governor, Comptroller, Attorney General, US Senate, Congressional Districts 2 and 3 and many more races are equally important and mail-in voting will play a significant factor in those Primary races as well.

As a reminder…if you want to learn more about the local candidates be sure to check out these Voter Guides:
