PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – The Calvert County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) voted yesterday, Feb. 8, to adopt a proposal from the Calvert County Redistricting Committee to update county commissioner election district boundaries based on 2020 Census Data collected. The Redistricting Committee reviewed and discussed four proposals before recommending the third proposal option to the BOCC, which is the proposal option the BOCC approved and adopted. The unanimous vote updates the boundaries of all three districts and reflects the following population numbers in each district:

·         District 1: 30,253

·         District 2: 31,158

·         District 3: 31,359

“After weeks of public meetings to receive and respond to citizen input, analyzing data from the 2020 United States Census and deliberation from members of the Redistricting Committee, we adopted a proposal that will allow fair and equal representation for each district,” said BOCC President Earl F. “Buddy” Hance. “This decision ensures that all future voting in Calvert County is truly representative of the people, and we appreciate the efforts of every citizen and committee member that took time to help make this positive change for our county.”

The Redistricting Committee consists of nine members appointed by the BOCC with representatives from the Calvert County Democratic Central Committee, Republican Central Committee, League of Women Voters and the NAACP Calvert County branch.

The Redistricting Committee held six public meetings beginning in December 2021 to receive public input on current commissioner election district boundaries. To view recordings of the public meetings, visit the county’s website at www.CalvertCountyMd.gov/RedistrictingCommittee or YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/CalvertCountyGov.  

Redistricting is the process of changing election district boundaries. The BOCC appoints a Redistricting Committee charged with reviewing BOCC election districts and boundaries following the decennial census to account for population changes.

  1. Calvert needs to drain their swamp! The current commissioners voted to raise the special taxing district fees for the Chesapeake Ranch Estates which is absolutely ridiculous
    The special tax is for road repairs and infrastructure, CRE is pocketing that money, the county has stolen over 20 million dollars since this tax was put into place, not to mention the 2 million dollars that CRE collects every single year in HOA fees, roads fail to meet Maryland standards but yet public transportation still operates on them, 75 percent of the roads in CRE have no stop signs nor do they have a posted speed limit! And we’re supposed to just keep handing our money over to them, There are also no sidewalks or crosswalks in CRE which violates Maryland requirements as CRE is less than 2 blocks from a public school
    When I attempted to contact Mike Hart on these ongoing problems he was of no help, wouldn’t even return a phone call. A lot of help the commisioners are in this county

  2. Exactly what is the necessity of redistricting, a “… decision ensures that all future voting in Calvert County is truly representative of the people…” if each district can’t vote for their own commissioner? As it is now, the whole of the county can vote equally for each commissioner seat. Stupid.
