In September of 2022, the Annapolis City Council passed Resolution 52-22, establishing a City Municipal Elections Task Force to study and make recommendations to improve election laws and processes. The Task Force was required to convene at least one public hearing. At the conclusion of the Task Force’s work, the group shall submit a report to the Annapolis City Council.

During the 2021 Annapolis municipal elections, the City faced unprecedented challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic and related health and safety precautions needed to protect voters and poll workers. This prompted the City Council to seek review of current election laws, processes and procedures. The City’s next municipal election is currently scheduled for November 2025.
