Welcome to Maryland on Ballotpedia!

Bordering Virginia, West Virginia, Washington D.C., Pennsylvania, Delaware and the Atlantic Ocean, Maryland is one of the smallest states by area. The Maryland Constitution is the basic governing document of the state. Like most U.S. state governments, the government of Maryland has exclusive authority over matters that lie entirely within the state's borders, except as limited by the Constitution of the United States.

Maryland has two members of the U.S. Senate, a total of eight members of the U.S. House of Representatives, 151 members of the Maryland House of Representatives and 47 members of the Maryland State Senate.
