    If you wish to vote early this year, please remember that there is a NEW location in the northern party of the county:

    Ward Farm Park Voting Center

    10455 Ward Road

    Dunkirk MD 20754

    This replaces the early vote center at Fairview Library; however, there will still be a secure mail-in ballot drop box behind Fairview Library.

    Here is a map showing the location of this vote center. The building is shown as a blue rectangle on the map. Located in Ward Farm Park, it is at the back of the parking lot furthest from Ward Road.

    There are also early voting centers at the Community Resource Building in Prince Frederick and Southern Community Center in Lusby. Calvert voters may use any of these sites during early voting.

    (However, on Primary Election Day and Election Day, if voting in-person, you must go to your assigned precinct.)

    For more information on early voting and other election matters, visit the Calvert County Election Board website.

    Shared from the Maryland Commission on Caregiving:

    "Dear Caregiver:

    As the “Voice of the Caregiver” the Maryland Commission on Caregiving wants to know more about the experiences of family caregivers in the state and we need your help!

    Family caregivers are people who assist adults aged 18 or older with disabilities, illnesses, diseases, or limitations that make it hard for them to take care of themselves. Caregivers help with things like personal care, household chores, managing money, arranging services from others, or regularly visiting to check on how they are doing.

    We have developed a 15-minute online and anonymous survey that asks questions about the person being cared for and the caregiver’s knowledge of available programs and priorities for supports and services. If you care for someone, we would appreciate it if you could take the time to complete the survey through the link below. If you aren’t a caregiver but know other caregivers, please consider forwarding this email to them so we can obtain as many responses as possible.

    If you complete the survey, you will have the chance to enter a raffle where 50 people will be randomly chosen to get a $20 e-gift card.

    Results from the survey will be shared publicly with special attention to legislators and the Departments of Human Services, Disabilities, Aging, and Health to improve policies and programs for MD caregivers just like you! The survey will remain open until December 31, 2023.

    Thank you for your consideration to participate."

    At the November 7 meeting, Sheriff Ricky Cox and Major David Canning provided  updates on numerous issues.

    Here are a few notes from topics reviewed during our discussion:

    to date, drug overdoses total 100;

    the ages of fentanyl overdoses changed from 20-30 year-olds to 37-45 year-olds (likely due to an increase in fentanyl-laced drugs and easy access);

    the DARE curriculum is being used in a few private schools;

    the Sheriff's Department created a tentative curriculum to address youth drug use within CCPS requirements for the 2023-2024 school year;

    8 Student Response Officers are needed to fully staff the public schools;

    the Sheriff's Office increased traffic stops to reduce dangerous driving;

    and by the end of next summer, traffic lights will be synchronized from Prince Frederick to Dunkirk to provide control.

    The Sheriff distributed three quarterly reports that detail ongoing updates. For more information, visit

    Many thanks to Shauna Mayes and Darlene Harrod for providing this news item.
