In an effort to minimize potential COVID exposure, we will only accept filing information via email at BOECandidateFiling@co.pg.md.us or fax to 301-341-7391. Once we receive completed documentation, we will contact you to make an appointment to finalize the process.
Every candidate will need to submit:

- Financial Disclosure Confirmation Information
- Filing Fee
- Copy of Driver's License - do not email. Present upon arrival.
Financial disclosures are completed for the previous calendar year. Any candidate that files for office during calendar year 2023 MUST file an updated financial disclosure after January 1, 2024. The State Board of Elections requests that updated disclosures are filed prior to the candidate filing deadline (no later than February 20, 2024). If an updated financial disclosure is not received, the candidate will be removed from the ballot (see: 2023-2024 Financial Disclosure Notification). If you have any questions about the disclosures, please contact the appropriate agency where they are filed.
For School Board:
There is a filing fee of $25. The fee for Central Committee is $10. The fee must be paid by either credit card, check, money order or cash.
