The 1956 United States presidential election in Maryland took place on November 6, 1956, as part of the 1956 United States presidential election. Maryland voters chose 9[3] representatives, or electors, to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

Maryland was won by incumbent President Dwight D. Eisenhower (RPennsylvania), running with Vice President Richard Nixon, with 60.00% of the popular vote, against Adlai Stevenson (DIllinois), running with Senator Estes Kefauver, with 39.94% of the popular vote.[4][5]

By winning all 24 county-equivalents, Eisenhower became and remains the solitary presidential candidate to sweep all Maryland's counties and Baltimore City.[6] As of the 2016 presidential election, this is the last election in which the City of Baltimore voted for a Republican Presidential candidate.[7]

During his first term as president, he moved his private residence to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and officially changed his residency to Pennsylvania.
