The deadline to file a certificate of candidacy for the 2022 Primary Elections has been extended from February 22, 2022, to March 22, 2022.
The Maryland Court of Appeals pushed Maryland's 2022 primary campaign candidate filing deadline back after several petitions were filed against the state's new legislative districts. The new deadline will be March 22, 2022, as stated in an order from the Maryland Court of Appeals. The March 4, 2022, deadline to withdraw a certificate of candidacy has also been extended to March 24, 2022.
The primary election date will remain June 28, 2022.
