All 10 Maryland electoral votes to the Electoral College
The United States presidential election in Maryland, 1976 was held on November 2, 1976. Incumbent Republican President Gerald Ford of Michigan and his running mate Senator Bob Dole of Kansas lost to the Democratic challengers, Governor Jimmy Carter of Georgia and Senator Walter Mondale of Minnesota. Carter and Mondale won the state with 53.04 percent of the vote compared to Ford and Dole’s 46.96 percent – a comfortable margin of 6.08 percent.
After Nixon had won every county-equivalent in the state except for Baltimore City in 1972, Carter won eight of twenty-three counties, most critically the populous Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties in the Washington metropolitan area and the Lower Southern counties of St. Mary’s, Charles and Calvert. Ford did not win more than 61.2 percent ( Talbot County) of the vote in a two-way contest in any county.  This is the last time St. Mary’s, Calvert, Cecil and Allegany Counties have given Democrat majorities or pluralities in a presidential election.
