2020 Parish Election Resources - Maryland Catholic Conference


Election Toolkit for Parishes 

Please use these resources to raise awareness and encourage participation in elections. Most of the information can be used any time. Election-specific materials, such as candidate survey responses, will be updated for the 2022 primary and general election.

2022 Election Dates

The Maryland primary is June 28, 2022 and the general election is Nov. 8, 2022.

Candidate Surveys and Election Guides


Many organizations seek to distribute voter or election guides through parishes, parish organizations, or schools. Please use only those guides provided by the Maryland Catholic Conference or approved by your (arch)diocesan bishop. If you have questions, please contact the Maryland Catholic Conference via email or 410-269-1155.
