On March 17, 2020, Governor Larry Hogan issued a proclamation postponing the 2020 Presidential Election from April 28, 2020 to June 2, 2020 in response to the novel coronavirus pandemic. To educate its voters, the State Board of Elections (SBE) and the Prince George’s County Board of Elections will provide a series of public outreach announcements as it relates to the conduct of the 2020 Primary Elections. These changes were made to ensure voters can exercise their fundamental right to vote while also safeguarding the public’s health during this pandemic.

Governor Hogan required the State Board of Elections to develop a comprehensive plan detailing how the State will conduct its primary election. On April 3, 2020, the State Board of Elections presented a plan to conduct a primarily vote by mail election and the Governor ratified the SBE’s plan in a proclamation issued on April 10, 2020.
