The Carroll County Observer will be tracking the early voting turnout throughout the 2022 General Election (Oct 27th – Nov 3rd).

Here is a recap of early voting in Carroll County through day 3:

Total votes cast in Carroll County through day 3: 4,732

  • Westminster continues to have the lion share of early voters through day 3 (2,495 votes cast at that location in three days).
  • Saturday and Sunday are historically low voter turnout days so the drop in votes on day 3 and day 4 should not be surprising. The turnout numbers should pick back up on day 5.
  • The Observer made sure to make it out and vote this weekend:

Of the 4,732 votes cast on days 1, 2 and 3:

  • 1,340 are registered Democrats
  • 55 are registered Green, Libertarian or Other
  • 2,721 are registered Republicans
  • 616 are registered as Unaffiliated / Independent

The 4,732 votes cast to date makes up 3.71% of eligible voters in the county. This percentage continues to top the statewide early voting % turnout (2.80% statewide through day 3).

Fun Fact: Of the jurisdictions in Maryland with over 100,000 eligible voters…Carroll County has the second highest percentage of early voters to eligible voters:

  1. Harford County: 4.00%
  2. Carroll County: 3.71%
  3. Howard County: 3.48%
  4. Anne Arundel County: 2.97%
  5. Baltimore County: 2.96%
  6. Charles County: 2.90%
  7. Frederick County: 2.60%
  8. Prince George’s County: 2.35%
  9. Montgomery County 2.30%
  10. Baltimore City: 1.59%

Obviously mail in voting has likely changed how many people come out and vote early. The question that should be asked…do we still need 8 days of early voting now that we have a significantly expanded mail in voting system in Maryland? Something to think about for the future.
