Maryland Catholic Conference publishes candidate surveys in advance of primary elections


Marylanders will vote for governor, new state senators and delegates, a U.S. Senator, and U.S. Representatives, and other offices in the upcoming election.

Learn about the candidates

The Maryland Catholic Conference sent a survey to more than 500 primary election candidates for Maryland Governor, General Assembly, U.S. Senate, and the U.S. House of Representatives. The survey consisted of five questions (“agree” or “disagree”) and an invitation to provide a short statement.

Go to mdcatholic.org/elections to confirm your congressional and state voting districts and then review the responses from candidates in your districts. If they didn’t answer, consider letting them know this survey is important to you as a constituent.

In the Diocese of Wilmington, the Eastern Shore of Maryland encompasses U.S. District 1 and State Districts 34 through 38.
