The Maryland General Assembly Legislative Redistricting Advisory Commission released their proposed legislative map. You can view the full map here: https://mgaleg.maryland.gov/Other/Redistricting/Final/LRACFINAL-LEGISLATIVE/lrac-legislative.pdf
Here are the districts for Carroll County in the proposal:
District 5: District 5 remains all in one district for Delegates. The breakdown is mostly Carroll County and a little bit of Frederick County:
District 42: District 42 is broken into 3 parts (42A, 42B and 42C). Carroll County makes up all 42C and a minority in all of 42 (voting for the State Senator in that district):
Note: Current Carroll County Districts are 4, 5 and 9 (9A for Delegate).
Overall this proposal sets up Carroll County to have 4 Delegates in Annapolis and 1 Senator (maybe 2, but that person would need to get a lot of votes from Baltimore County to win).

I do not know how this affects currently elected members expected to run in 2022 from District 5…that is something I will keep an eye on.
This proposal moves me from District 5 to District 42C. I am not sure how I feel about that at this time. My gut tells me this will not be wonderful.

I expect many more people will have more in depth breakdowns of the numbers in the coming days and hopefully we get some statements from elected officials I can share with the community.
