‘Post-Its’ is a weekly collection of community news and useful information for residents of the South Baltimore Peninsula.
In-person voting – the early kind – began Monday, Oct. 26, across Baltimore city. Long lines formed in the morning on Day 1 at the closest polling location for much of the peninsula: Dempsey’s Restaurant at Oriole Park/Camden Yards (333 W. Camden St.). The voting center is open daily, 7am-6pm, through Nov. 3.
On Election Day, you can also vote at Digital Harbor High School, the only in-person polling place on the peninsula. Both locations also have ballot drop-off boxes.
Residents remain responsible for recycling drop-off for at least another month, according to the city in an Oct. 27 announcement that extended the cancellation of residential pick-up until December (date TBD). The good news is that you can now drop off your recycling on Saturdays at the temporary community recycling centers. Our area’s closest center continues to be the city truck parked at the entrance to the Digital Harbor High School parking lot at 1100 Covington St. (Pro tip: Only leave your recycling at the center if there is a truck there for you to put it in.)
Halloween got off to an early start under the 395 overpass on Oct. 17 as over a dozen costumed pets paraded around the Checkerspot Brewing Company parking lot for the BARCS Howl-O-Ween Pet Costume Contest that benefits the Baltimore animal shelter. The contest was one of several community events organized as part of the shelter’s annual BARCStoberfest.
