Maryland’s Constitution limits the state’s
Governor to two consecutive terms. A person can run for that office again after
sitting out one term.
SECTION 1.28 The executive power of the State shall be vested in a Governor, whose term of office shall commence
on the third Wednesday of January next ensuing his election, and continue for four years, and until his
successor shall have qualified; and a person who has served two consecutive popular elective terms of office as Governor
shall be ineligible to succeed himself as Governor for the term immediately following the second of said two
consecutive popular elective terms.
-- THE CONSTITUTION OF THE STATE OF MARYLAND
