GENERAL ASSEMBLY

The lawmaking powers of the State are vested in the General Assembly, which consists of two separate
branches — the Senate and the House of Delegates (Const., Art. Ill, sec. 1). The General Assembly has
188 members, with 47 Senators and 141 Delegates. One Senator and three Delegates are elected from
each of the 47 legislative districts. After every decennial census, legislative district boundaries are redrawn
to conform to the one person/one vote principle.

Each Senator or Delegate must be a citizen of Maryland and a resident for at least one year preceding
the date of election. A prospective legislator must have resided for the six months prior to election in the
legislative district the candidate seeks to represent. A Senator must be at least twenty-five years of age at
the rime of election and a Delegate at least twenty-one. Persons elected to or holding a civil or military
office other than as a member of a reserve component under the federal or Stare government are not
eligible for election to the General Assembly (Const., Art. Ill, sees. 9, 10, 11). All seats in the General
Assembly are up for election every four years. (The next general election will be held November 1994.)

The term of each Senator and Delegate is four years from the second Wednesday of January following
the date of election (Const., Art. Ill, sec. 6). No limit is placed on the number of terms a legislator may
serve. If a vacancy occurs in either house through death, resignation, or disqualification, the Governor
appoints a replacement whose name is submitted by the State Central Committee of the same political
