As the Pennsylvania primary falls in the midst of a global pandemic and increasing civil unrest protesting racism and police brutality, voting is more important than ever. Here is a guide to help you navigate Election Day, June 2nd 2020. 

  • If you received an absentee or mail-in ballot, please vote by mail. Under the current circumstances, it is the safest way to vote. If you have questions about how to complete your ballot, instructions are available here. You can track the status of your ballot here.

 

 

 

 

  • Polls are open from 7am to 8pm. As long as you are in line to vote by 8pm, you must be allowed in to cast your ballot. If the city implements another curfew, voters headed to or from the polls will not be impacted. You are allowed to vote past curfew

 

  • If you do decide to vote in person at your polling location, wear a mask and practice social distancing. The polling locations should be taped off to keep people 6 feet apart and plan to provide PPE, hand sanitizer, and sanitary wipes. You can not be turned away if you do not have a mask, but it is strongly encouraged for everyone’s safety.

 

 

  • If you did not receive your mail in ballot or if it was lost, damaged or destroyed you can vote with a provisional ballot. To do this, you should go to the polling place and ask for a provisional ballot. The poll workers will provide you with instructions on how to cast your provisional ballot.
