Prince George's County Board of Elections
The deadline to request a recount for a county/local office is different from the deadline to request a recount for a State or federal office.

The Prince George's County Board of Elections certified the 2022 Gubernatorial Primary Election on August 1, 2022. The deadline to request a recount for a county office is August 4, 2022.
• For a State or federal office, the deadline to request a recount is 3 calendar days after the State Board of Elections certifies the election. The State Board is scheduled to meet on August 15 at 1 pm to certify the election.
COVID-19 REQUIREMENT: Prince George’s County lifted its indoor mask mandate on Monday, February 28, 2022. Our office is currently open to the public.
