about this state
Maryland is the only state where'd you WANT to have a "Crabby Day"... Oh, don't give us that look, you liked that joke. But you know what's not a joke? Elections! Case in point, that one time you had one where it came down to 17 (!!!) votes. Don't let elections be decided by margins that inspire cardiac arrests! Maryland will have two main elections in 2022. Its primary election will take place on June 28, and the general will be held on November 8. Here's all the info you need before you head to the polls this year! Oh and don't forget the Old Bay!

what's new in maryland voting since 2020
Maryland passed 11 bills related to elections and voting in 2021. The good news is, they took steps to ensure voting is accessible and convenient for all Marylanders. Maryland will have additional early vote sites and they will be open longer each day, from 7am to 8pm. Maryland will also mail absentee ballot applications to all voters, create a permanent early voter list, and facilitate registration and ballot access for military, college, and incarcerated voters. Yay!

Vote Save the Senate Fund
If we can increase our majority to 52 Senate seats in 2022, Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema’s refusal to change the filibuster won’t matter. We can elect a Democratic majority that takes decisive action on raising the minimum wage, forgiving student debt, fighting climate change, protecting reproductive freedom, and more. But that will only work if we also protect the four most vulnerable Democratic incumbents in purple states like Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, and New Hampshire.
