Maybe you’ve read our election coverage this year, from a referendum on sports gambling to the challenge of ensuring that everyone can vote — safely — in a pandemic to the race for Baltimore’s mayor.

Or maybe you’ve focused on our stories about the way COVID-19 has changed…well, just about everything.  Maybe you’ve pored over the number of cases, hospitalizations and deaths on our COVID-19 data page.  Numbers that show how COVID-19 has exacerbated the inequities in our state.

Whatever your reason for turning to Maryland Matters, today we turn to you, our trusted readers, to help us make sure we can always provide you with the news you rely on.

Please join in the conversation next week as our distinguished panel — U.S. Rep. Jamie B. Raskin (D), State Sen. Michael J. Hough (R) and veteran Maryland political strategist Lucinda Ware — explores what the 2020 election results will mean for Maryland’s 2022 races.

The conversation starts at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 17.  It’s virtual, of course. And it’s a chance for you, dear reader, to look forward to the next election cycle while you support Maryland Matters.
