For much of Maryland, local government typically is county government. Baltimore City, although a municipality, has been considered on a par with county jurisdictions since the adoption of the Maryland Constitution of 1851.
Twenty-four main local jurisdictions are found in Maryland. They include twenty-three counties and Baltimore City.
