Candidate Filing - 2022 Gubernatorial Primary Election
You must be a registered voter and a resident of the district for which you are filing.
Financial disclosures are completed for the previous calendar year. Any candidate that files for office during calendar year 2021 MUST file an updated financial disclosure after January 1, 2022. The State Board of Elections requests that updated disclosures are filed prior to the candidate filing deadline (no later than March 4, 2022). If an updated financial disclosure is not received, the candidate will be removed from the ballot (see: 2021-2022 Financial Disclosure Notification). If you have any questions about the disclosures, please contact the appropriate agency where they are filed.
All financial disclosure statements must be filed electronically on OEA’s web portal which will navigate you to the site to create a personal account at: https://pgcgovtportal.force.com/oea/PGC_OEA_Login.
New users should register an account. Usernames are automatically generated from the system and include (.oea) at the end of the e-mail address used during registration. Prospective officeholders may either file a Financial Disclosure Statement per County Code or Financial Disclosure Affirmation if they have already filed a financial disclosure with the State of Maryland.
Please contact the Office of Ethics and Accountability (301) 883-3445 with any questions you may have.
