Maryland Election Guide 2012

When Marylanders head to the polls Nov. 6, they will elect members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives in addition to casting their ballots for president. Dozens of people are running for a chance to represent the state's voters in Washington.

The Baltimore Sun asked all major and third-party candidates to answer questions about pressing policy issues facing the country.

Early voting in Maryland will take place Oct. 27 through Nov. 1. For more information, visit the State Board of Elections website.

This is the first general election since the Maryland General Assembly redrew the state's congressional districts last year. To determine what district you live in, use our tool.

Most candidates received The Sun's questionnaire in June. There were no restrictions placed on the length of answers. Responses were edited for style.
