Earlier this month, as part of series of actions by his administration to limit the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and maintain essential services, Governor Larry Hogan issued a proclamation to officially postpone the April 28 primary election until June 2. 


In a special primary election Tuesday, Maryland's 7th District voters decided which candidates will run in the April 28th special general election to fill out the congressional term of the late Elijah Cummings. 

Congressman Elijah Cummings has passed away.  The Maryland Democrat was 68 years old.  A tweet from his office says he died this morning at approximately 2:45 Eastern time at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore.  The congressman had been suffering from "longstanding health challenges."
