Elections 2022

Educators and public education issues play a powerful role in elections. When public education champions hold office, we can make important progress on what matters for our students and schools—whether it’s adequate staffing levels so every student has the individual attention they deserve, quality pay to recruit and retain excellent educators, or ensuring that every school has the resources to deliver a quality education that prepares every child for the future, no matter their race, background, or zip code.

Our Candidate Recommendation Process

Voters can learn more about the candidates recommended by MSEA through the Apple Ballots distributed by educators at polling locations across the state and at www.MDAppleBallot.com.

For the 2022 statewide primary elections, MSEA recommends Wes Moore and Aruna Miller for governor and lieutenant governor, Brooke Lierman for comptroller, and Anthony Brown for attorney general. To learn more about these education champions, click here.

MSEA has a very fair, open, and thorough screening process for recommending candidates to its members and the general public:

Federal candidate endorsements must also be approved by the NEA Fund for Children and Public Education.

MSEA’s Fund for Children and Public Education

When public education advocates come together to raise our voices and use our strength, we can win. That’s why thousands of educators, parents, and allies support MSEA’s political action committee (PAC), the Fund for Children and Public Education. The Fund uses your contributions to support pro-public education candidates up and down the ballot.
