Prince George’s Proud: An Update From County Executive Alsobrooks, July 14, 2022

Dear Prince Georgians:

The 2022 Maryland Gubernatorial Primary Election is underway, and we want to take this opportunity to encourage all eligible Prince Georgians to plan your vote during this election season. As a reminder, early voting in the County ends today, Thursday, July 14 and Primary Election Day is Tuesday, July 19.

Residents can vote in-person throughout the remainder of early voting at any of the 13 early voting centers located in the County. Early voting centers will remain open until 8:00 PM. Residents who choose to vote in-person on Primary Election Day should vote at their assigned polling location. To locate your assigned polling location, visit the Board of Elections website here. If you are not already registered to vote, bring your MVA issued Driver’s License or ID card to your assigned polling location, and you will be allowed to register and vote.

We recognize that many of you are traveling with your friends and family this summer, and that is why we are continuing to encourage residents, who have already requested a mail-in ballot, to utilize one of the 38 safe, secure drop boxes located throughout the County for voters to deposit their completed ballots. Be sure to sign the oath on the return envelope to ensure your ballot is counted. It is also important to remember that vote by mail ballots must be dropped off by 8:00 PM on Tuesday, July 19, to be counted and vote by mail ballots submitted via the U.S. Post Office must be postmarked by Primary Election Day.

If you missed the deadline to apply for a vote by mail ballot, you may visit the Prince George’s County Board of Elections office in Largo to request one in-person. In addition, if you requested a vote by mail ballot prior to June 30, and have not received it, please contact the Board of Elections so they can check the status of your request and ensure you receive another ballot. The Board of Elections has safeguards in place to ensure that each voter only casts one ballot. For more information, e-mail the Board of Elections at boeabsenteevoting@co.pg.md.us or election@co.pg.md.us.

As we approach Primary Election Day, we are encouraging all Prince Georgians to be proud vote during this election season. Remember to take a friend, family member, or coworker with you to the polls and have your voices heard. If you need additional information on the primary election or have questions about the voting process, contact the Board of Elections at 301-341-7300 or visit their website here.

Yours in service,

Prince George\’s Proud: An Update From County Executive Alsobrooks, July 1, 2022

Dear Prince Georgians:

We are excited to share that we have officially kicked off our Youth@Work/Summer Youth Enrichment Program (SYEP) to provide safe and productive opportunities for our youth this summer! For more than 30 years, Prince George’s County has proudly supported this summer program to give our young people a chance to work and learn, and this year we are providing approximately 6,000 youth with summer employment.

SYEP is an award-winning program through our Office of Human Resources Management (OHRM) that provides job readiness training, career workshops, and entry-level summer employment opportunities to young people ages 14 to 22. Youth who apply and are selected for the program are placed in constructive summer work experiences in County government agencies, private sector companies, non-profits, and other community organizations. In addition, SYEP’s Talent Pipeline Program will provide some of our youth with employment once the summer is over.

We are also excited to share that the award-winning Alsobrooks Summer Passport Experience, officially launched during the summer of 2021, has returned this summer, and will provide summer opportunities to 1,000 County youth. The Alsobrooks Summer Passport Experience offers summer activities and programs for youth ages 12 to 15. The program is based on three Es: Education, Entrepreneurship, and Experience/Entertainment, and provides youth with opportunities for fun and growth in areas including STEM, health and beauty, self-care, mental health, trades, entrepreneurship, and more.

We want to take this opportunity to thank all our community partners for their dedication and commitment, as well as their efforts to create opportunities for our youth. We would also like to thank OHRM’s Summer Youth Enrichment Program team and the staff from the Office of the County Executive who work hard each year to make these programs shine. These programs have a proven track record for our young people, and we are extremely proud of everyone who helps make it a reality year after year.

Lastly, we want to thank all of our young people who applied to participate in these programs during the application period and are eager to learn new skills over the summer. We recognize the importance of providing our youth with meaningful opportunities that help propel them into fulfilling careers, and every summer, we are always so proud of those who come to work with this wonderful program. We all have something wonderful to offer this world, and we are excited to provide opportunities such as this where our youth can learn and grow. 

Yours in service,

Angela Alsobrooks
Prince George’s County Executive
