PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – July 18, 2022 – Ahead of the 2022 Maryland primary election, the Calvert County Board of Elections announces multiple ways for citizens to view election results after the polls close and offer important reminders for citizens voting in person or by mail.
The Maryland primary election will be held Tuesday, July 19, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Voters can view a precinct and polling place map on the Election Board website. To find their assigned polling place, voters may visit the state voter services website. The least crowded time to vote on election day is typically between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Anyone who is already in line at the closing time of 8 p.m. will be allowed to vote, but no one will be allowed to join the line after 8 p.m.
After Maryland polls close on Tuesday, July 19, citizens can tune in to the Calvert County Government YouTube channel at www.YouTube.com/CalvertCountyGov or Comcast channel 1070 to view preliminary results for state and local contests. Citizens can also visit www.CalvertCountyMd.gov/Vote for links to results from the State Board of Elections.
Preliminary results will not be released until all polls in Maryland have closed. All results are unofficial until mail-in and provisional ballots have been canvassed and counted and results are certified by the Election Board.
Mail-in ballots must be postmarked no later than July 19 to be counted. If you cannot get to a mailbox or post office in time, mail-in ballots may be placed in one of four secure drop boxes available throughout the county before 8 p.m. on July 19:

Same-day voter registration is available at all polling locations.
