PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – June 17, 2022 – As the July 19, 2022, primary election approaches, the Calvert County Board of Elections encourages voters to explore voting options, and learn about voting precinct changes online and review general election information to ensure voters are prepared for Election Day. Registered voters will be able to vote by mail, or in person, during early voting, or on Election Day.

The Maryland State Board of Elections will mail notifications of precinct and district boundary changes to voters early next week. District boundaries are updated every 10 years based on population changes as identified by the U.S. Census.

Sample ballots will also arrive in voter mailboxes soon. A sample ballot includes an example of the actual ballot the voter will receive, including a list of candidates and ballot measures the voter is entitled to vote on, the date of the election, voter precinct information, and voting instructions.
