Providing a strong voice for Maryland's nonpublic school community
Maryland CAPE Candidate Surveys
Among other activities, the Maryland chapter of the Council for American Private Education (CAPE) acts as a legislative coalition for the voting families, teachers and administrators for Maryland’s 120,000-plus nonpublic school students.
With statewide elections in 2022, Maryland CAPE is again inviting all candidates for the Maryland Senate and House of Delegates the opportunity to state their positions on a number of Maryland-specific issues important to our state's nonpublic schools.
As in prior elections, candidates are being asked whether they “support” or “oppose” four separate issue statements. A blank response means that the candidate chose not to assert a position on that particular issue. Candidates aslo are given the opportunity to comment on any specific issue, in order to explain their position.
WHEN TO VOTE
Please remember that there are primary and general elections!
In many Maryland legislative districts, the July 19, 2022 primary election is the most outcome-determinative.
In others, the general election is most important. Your votes can be influential in both elections.
Primary election: July 19, 2022 (early voting is July 7-14)
Please do not confuse your state legislative district, which is served by your state senator and state delegate(s) with your congressional legislative district, which is served by your U.S. senator and U.S. representative. The boundaries are different!
