The following news item is shared by Janet Bellizzi of the League of Women Voters of Calvert County:
We have been informed by the Calvert County Board of Elections of the following changes to the 2020 General Election:
Early Voting is now October 26th through November 2nd, including the weekend. The hours are updated to 7am to 8pm (previously it was 8am to 8pm). Calvert will still have the one Early Voting site.
On Election Day, there will be five vote centers in Calvert, equal to the number of high schools plus our early voting center will be open on Election Day. We are in the process of determining the best sites for the vote centers.
The mail-in ballot applications will be mailed out the week of August 24th – August 28th and should arrive in voter mailboxes the following week. It does include a pre-paid postage envelope to return to us.
We are looking into adding two more drop boxes for the County, one in the northern end and one for the south end.
A copy of the press release is attached. Please share with family, friends, on social media or any other way you can reach the largest population of people.
PLEASE NOTE THAT LWVCC STRONGLY ENCOURAGES PEOPLE TO REQUEST THEIR ABSENTEE BALLOTS ONLINE. IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED ONE BY SEPTEMBER 8, PLEASE CONTACT THE CALVERT COUNTY BOARD OF ELECTIONS AT (410) 535-2214.
WE ARE ALSO SUGGESTING THAT YOU CONSIDER DROPPING OFF YOUR COMPLETED, SIGNED BALLOT IN ONE OF THE DROP BOXES THAT WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE. THIS WILL ENSURE THAT YOUR BALLOT IS RECEIVED ON TIME (8 PM ON ELECTION DAY, NOVEMBER 3) AND IS COUNTED. REMEMBER THAT YOU CAN TRACK YOUR ABSENTEE BALLOT ONLINE.
We will provide updates as more information is available.
