Did you know that Pennsylvania now offers mail-in ballots for both the primary and general elections? To vote by mail in the primary on June 2, apply for your mail-in ballot no later than May 26.
Thanks to Pennsylvania Act 77 of 2019, you do not need to provide a reason or excuse if you want to use a mail-in ballot. Your county voter registration office must receive your application for a mail-in ballot by 5:00 PM on the Tuesday before the election (May 26 for the primary). You can apply for a mail-in ballot online (the online application is only available for those with a valid Pennsylvania Driver's License or a PennDOT ID) or by mail. The application has a box to check if you would like to receive a mail-in ballot application every year.
If you've already applied for a mail-in ballot, you can check your application status online. You will need your application number.
The deadline to return your voted mail-in ballot is 8:00 PM on June 2. Mail-in ballots must be returned to your county election office (which may not be the same as your local polling location). You can find your county election office on the Votes PA website. Check out Votes PA for more information about mail-in ballots, absentee ballots, and emergency absentee ballots.
Philadelphia residents can find additional information on Philadelphiavotes.com. The Vote from Home flyer is available in 10 different languages and includes information about registering to vote, applying for a mail-in ballot, and how to submit your mail-in ballot.
