We want everyone who can to be sure they are registered, and to go out and vote.  It is so important.”

Mayors’ Tips for Effective Voting

The Mayors of Prince George’s County encourage each resident to:

1. Be sure you are registered to vote.  You must register by October 13, 2020 to be eligible to vote. You can register now at elections.maryland.gov and can also verify your registration information.

2. Obtain your mail-in ballot, which must be requested no later than October 20. You can apply for it online at elections.maryland.gov. The Board of Elections mailed request forms to all registered voters in late August and began mailing requested ballots beginning in late September.  Tip:  Request that your ballot be mailed to you, instead of sent by email, as emailed ballots cannot be scanned and must be transposed into a machine-readable ballot by an election worker. To avoid this, ask for a mailed ballot.

3. Vote.  Complete your ballot and return it.  Be sure to read the instructions carefully and follow them all. Your signature will be needed, but you will not sign the ballot itself. If you mail the ballot, allow plenty of time for it to arrive and be counted. You can also drop it off at a secure  ballot drop-off location in Prince George’s County, or take it directly to the Board of Elections offices, 1100 Mercantile Lane, Suite 115A, Largo MD 20774, Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Early voting and Election Day voting will be available at a limited number of County voting centers. Early voting is Monday, October 26, through Monday, November 2, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. You may vote at any voting center for Early Voting or Election Day voting. The complete list of these locations in Prince George’s County is available at the County Board of Elections website.
