My Maryland

What is My Maryland?

Whether you visit Maryland.gov daily or once a year, My Maryland is the place for you to customize Maryland.gov.

MyMARYLAND launches with its initial offering, the My Maryland Clipboard which allows you to save links on any Maryland.gov page to My Maryland. Even search results are clippable!
We've also implemented a "suggested clips" feature which shows you top content relevant to where you are on the website.

How should My Maryland work for you?

MyMARYLAND is for you. This is why it's development and future will be solely dependent on Maryland.gov user's feedback and feature requests. We don't want to build something we think you want, but rather know you want. Submit your My Maryland feedback or feature request today!

Where is my information stored?

My Maryland runs completely within your web browser. When you use the feature, any data stored is stored within your web browser's local storage. This means your data never travels across the internet and always stays with you. This also means My Maryland is unique to each of your devices.

Accessibility

Full WAI-ARIA support has been added to allow users of assistive technologies to navigate and operate all controls. For specific instructions on using My Maryland with assistive technologies, please jump to "How to use My Maryland with Assistive Technologies".

Adding Clips - Mobile/Touch Devices
