Need a refresher before the polls? Read stories and profiles on candidates running for office in Carroll County.

COMMISSIONER DISTRICT 1

This district stretches from Manchester to Taneytown and Keymar. The largest of the five districts, it touches Baltimore County on its east side, Frederick County to the west and Pennsylvania to the north. It’s big.

Democrat (unopposed in primary)

Tina Mawhinney of Westminster

Republican

• Robin Bartlett Frazier of Taneytown

COMMISSIONER DISTRICT 2

This district includes Hampstead and Finksburg, and the sliver of Reisterstown in Carroll. It includes the Gateway area of Route 140 from Baltimore County into Carroll, and also the Route 30 corridor in Hampstead.

Democrat

• Crystal Lee Dembrow, of Gamber, had filed to run as a Democrat — and would have been unopposed in the primary — but the Carroll County Board of Elections disqualified her because she’s 18, and the county requires candidates to be at least 21. The board released a statement noting that Dembrow’s name will be on the ballot, but, “A vote cast for Crystal Lee Dembrow will not be counted.” The county’s Democratic Central Committee may name another candidate to run in the General Election in November.

Republican

• Haven Shoemaker of Hampstead

COMMISSIONER DISTRICT 3

This district includes greater Westminster, including the City of Westminster and areas slightly to the north and west. McDaniel College, Carroll Community College and the seat of Carroll County government are all in this district.

Democrat (unopposed in primary)

Republican

• Dave Roush of Westminster

Republican
