2023 Legislative Priorities

As we transition into a legislative session with an entirely new administration and General Assembly, Common Cause Maryland will continue advocating for reforms aimed at building a more equitable and inclusive democracy. Though many bills introduced this year aim to improve how our democracy functions, the bills below are our priorities for the 90-day session. These proposals will help ensure that all Marylanders can observe and meaningfully participate in the legislative process.


2022 Legislative Review

This session, Common Cause Maryland supported reforms that responded to the needs of the local boards of election – especially as more voters are expected to vote by mail in the 2022 elections. We also watchdogged the redistricting process and supported several reforms that meet the public's demand for more accountability and transparency in our government.
