The Constitution Party of Maryland formed in 1995 as the Taxpayers Party of Maryland. In 1996, it was recognized as an official party by the State Administrative Board of Election Laws, but returned to "partisan organization" status in 1998, when its candidates failed to receive 3% of the votes cast in the 1996 general election.

The Taxpayers Party of Maryland reformed as the Maryland Constitution Party in February 1998, was recognized by the State Board of Elections on August 18, 2000, then lost its official party status in 2002.

The Maryland Constitution Party requalified on April 27, 2004, lost its official status on May 9, 2007 and was recognized as an official party by the State Board of Elections on August 25, 2008. The Party was renamed the Constitution Party of Maryland on April 24, 2009.

By January 1, 2011, the Constitution Party of Maryland was unable to meet the requirements to retain its status as a recognized political party in Maryland
