ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland’s highest court has extended the state’s candidate filing deadline by a month amid legal challenges to new political boundaries approved by the General Assembly.
The Court of Appeals announced Friday the new deadline will be March 22 at 9 p.m. in order to provide adequate time for judicial review. The former deadline was February 22. Maryland lawmakers last month approved a new map that defines boundaries for all 188 seats in the legislature.
The map is being challenged because of allegations of gerrymandering.
