The Observer reached out to the Carroll County Board of Elections on July 8th to try and understand the discrepancy between the reported numbers on day 1 from the local Board of Elections and the State Board of Elections…that did not go well and I will try again this weekend to reach out for a better understanding of the differences in the numbers from day 1.

The Observer visited two early voting locations (South Carroll and Westminster) on July 7th to chat with candidates and take a few photos.
It is always good to see which candidates are working the polling centers trying to earn your vote.
