Early voting in Maryland starts THIS Monday, October 26th and runs through Monday, November 2nd with Election Day to follow November 3rd. This is a change from the usual schedule in previous elections where early voting stops on the Thursday before the election. The polls are open from 7:00 AM-8:00 PM and that includes Saturday and Sunday. In Carroll County there are two early voting locations, the Westminster Senior Center on Stoner Avenue and the South Carroll Swim Club in Winfield, just off of Route 26/Liberty Road. Be sure to get out to vote (or send in your requested ballot) and make your voice heard! Below is some more info on the election and volunteer opportunites as well.
