Maryland's top two political parties, in their bylaws, declare who can vote in their primary election. A voter who insists on voting a different party ballot will be required to complete a provisional application and ballot. Then after the election, office staff will research to determine if a request was received before the deadline or if a clerical mistake was made. If neither situation applies, the ballot will be rejected. In any event, the voter will receive credit for voting.
Note: In a General Election, parties have no bearing and all voters may vote for any candidate, regardless of political affiliation.
You may view a copy of the ballot by entering your voter data on the voter services website and then clicking the link on the next page that appears.

The Calvert County Election Board has no regulatory authority in Election Law over the placement of campaign signs. In general, campaign signs fall under the purview of Free Speech. There are no longer any time limitations as to when signs may be erected. Common sense is encouraged to maintain the beauty of our county. The State Highway Administration (SHA) prohibits any and all signs in the State's right-of-way. For more information, visit www.marylandroads.com, or call 410-545-2819. Calvert County's Community and Planning Building department follows the same guidelines as SHA for placement of political signs on county roads. For more information, visit their web page to view the Zoning Ordinance (Chapter 6-8.05.E), or call 410-535-2348. A candidate should report any theft or destruction of signs to the Sheriff's Office at 410-535-2800.
