Construction on the Maryland State House in Annapolis began in 1772 and it's the oldest state capital building in the nation still in continuous legislative use. The building's dome is undergoing a rehabilitation project.

Goucher College Poll, in partnership with The Baltimore Banner and WYPR, polled Maryland Democrats and Republicans about who they would vote for in the July 19th primary. Respondents were asked about candidates for statewide races and issues such as inflation, crime, housing, the environment and more.

The poll contacted 501 Democrats and 508 Republicans age 18 or older by landline and cellphone from June 15-19. The survey has a margin of error of 4.4%. Additionally, 403 Democratic and 414 Republican voters were identified as likely voters and asked for their candidate preferences in the upcoming statewide gubernatorial primary contests. The likely voter samples have a margin of sampling error of +/-4.9 for Democrats and 4.8 points for Republicans.

The poll was funded and co-sponsored by the Sarah T. Hughes Center for Politics at Goucher College, The Baltimore Banner and WYPR.
