  • At its October 16, 2019 meeting, the Carroll County Board of Elections was informed that the State Board of Elections could not recommend approval for a third early voting site at the North Carroll Senior Center. The State Board's recommendation was based on the fact that Carroll County does not have enough registered voters for three required early voting centers. (Election Law Article, ยง10-301.1(b) requires three early voting centers for a county with more than 125,000 voters but less than 200,000 voters.) The State may re-evaluate the request for a third early voting center after the 2020 April Primary Election if the total number of registered voters exceeds 125,000 as required by law. If the State Board approves the third early voting center, it would be effective for the 2020 November General Election.
