Jump to: navigation, search

The Maryland General Assembly elections of 2010 took place on November 2, 2010, to choose the Delegates and Senators of the Maryland General Assembly. The U.S. House election, 2010, U.S. Senate election, 2010, and Maryland gubernatorial election, 2010 occurred on the same day. All 47 seats in the State Senate and 141 seats in the House of Delegates were contested. Democrats successfully defended their current supermajorities in both chambers. In this article, legislative districts are organized geographically rather than by number for ease of locating a delegation.

In the primary election on September 14, 2010, a number of sitting Senators were challenged from within their own party. Five Senators lost their primary elections.

The following list was updated on June 17, 2010, using the candidate list from the Maryland State Board of Elections[1] as well as news sources and candidate websites.

Election winners, minor party candidates, and those running as write-ins are listed in bold.
