The amendment was introduced into the Maryland Legislature as House Bill 164.[1]

The Maryland Legislature adjourned on April 7, 2014, without approving the amendment.[2]



Media editorial positions


  • My Eastern Shore MD, the online publication for six local eastern shore newspapers, said, "Beyond “one man, one vote,” consideration should be given to grouping communities with similar needs in the same district to ensure their issues get the proper attention from their elected representative… The redistricting process needs to be changed, with political patronage taken out of the equation. All three of these bills stand to help."[4]
