"The trouble around difference is really about privilege & power - the existence of privilege & the lopsided distribution of power that keeps it going. The trouble is rooted in a legacy that we all inherited, and WHILE WE'RE HERE IT BELONGS TO US. It isn't our fault. It wasn't caused by something we did or didn't do. But now that it's ours, it's up to us to decide how we're going to deal with it before we collectively pass it along to the generations that will follow ours."

2022 Will involve Redistricting and Statewide Elections
During the next General Assembly session beginning January 2022, elections will once more take center stage. Using data that the Census Bureau has provided from the 2020 enumeration of Maryland residents, lawmakers will need to realign all districts for choosing State Senators and Delegates. Maryland's eight Congressional seats were redrawn in the Special Session in December. The process for Maryland's State legislative maps will involve Governor Hogan drawing the maps and submitting them to the Legislature. The Governor's maps will go into effect for the elections in the fall, unless the House and Senate make changes during the 2020 session.
The Primary Election will be held from June 28, 2022 through Thursday, June 23, 2022, and the General Election will be held from October 27, 2022 through November 8, 2022, for every Senator and Delegate as well as Governor/Lt. Governor, Attorney General and Comptroller. Maryland will also elect Members of Congress from its eight congressional districts and one U.S. Senator (the incumbent is Chris Van Hollen).
