Elections

In 2014, Maryland voters had several big choices to make. There were statewide races for governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general and comptroller. Several county executive seats were in play. Every seat in the state legislature was on the ballot, as were Maryland’s eight congressional seats. Maryland's two U.S. Senators, however, got a break; neither was up for re-election.

The general election was November 4. Below are stories and interviews related to the 2014 election.
