Most Laurel residents in Prince George's County will for the first time cast a vote for District 4 candidates, after the new congressional districting map moved them out of Rep. Steny Hoyer's 5th District. Democrat Donna Edwards is the incumbent, and is being challenged by Republican Faith Loudon and Libertarian Scott Soffen.

North Laurel voters who lives in Howard County's District 3 have the option of Democratic incumbent John Sarbanes or Republican challenger Eric Knowles. Libertarian candidate Paul Drgos Jr. is also running in the district.
