CAMBRIDGE — Mail-in ballots should have been received now by registered voters in Dorchester County. Voters in District 1 will have the option to select one of three candidates for Board of Education: Phil Bramble, Mike Diaz, or Steve McDonald. A non-partisan position this category will appear on all ballots for voters in local District 1.

Republicans will see Jorge Delgado and Andy Harris listed as candidates for Representative in Congress and selections for delegates to the Republican National Convention.

The ballot for Democrats includes fifteen choices for the Presidential primary; and candidates Allison Galbraith, Mia Mason, and Jennifer Pingley on the ticket for Representative in Congress. (the winner of this primary will face off against the Republican winner of the same in the Nov. general election). There are also selections for female and male delegates to the Democratic National Convention.

Maryland residents who are eligible to vote in the state’s June 2 Primary have until May 27 to pre-register for the vote-by-mail election.
