How to Challenge a Ballot During Canvass

The public may challenge a ballot during the ballot review session.  Announce the challenge by calling 410-535-2214 or email elections@calvertcountymd.gov.   A person must then complete and send the Challenge During Canvass Form (PDF) to elections@calvertcountymd.gov.  The Board will wait up to 1 hour to receive the completed hour form. Once the Challenge During Canvass Form is received, the Board will take action on that ballot.

On April 10th Governor Larry Hogan proclaimed that the Presidential Primary Election will be conducted primarily by mail.
