On Tuesday, June 2nd, Pennsylvania is scheduled to hold its primary election.
There are many important down-ballot races, in addition to the national campaigns, that directly impact the entire Penn community and the broader Philadelphia community. Make sure you are informed and prepared before voting by visiting VotesPA, the PA Department of State’s voter-resource website. A large majority of polling places in Allegheny and Philadelphia counties will be closed on Election Day due to the COVID-19 crisis. If you plan on voting in-person in these counties, check VotesPA after May 18 to find your new or relocated polling location. If you plan to vote in another state or territory, you should visit your local election website.
If you chose to vote by mail, your mail-in ballot request must be received by Tuesday, May 26 and your completed mail-in ballot must be received by Philadelphia before polls close at 8pm EST on Election Day, Tuesday, June 2nd. To learn more about voting by mail in Pennsylvania, click here.
In addition, the student-led Penn Leads The Vote (PLTV) has developed numerous tools and resources with voting guidance for PA voters, in coordination with guidelines from the PA Department of State, and for voters across the country. Click here to access PLTV’s voting resource folder, which includes the mail-in ballot request form for those of you who must mail in your requests because you do not have PennDOT IDs, and visit pennvotes.org to learn more about registration, voter education, mail-in voting, in-person voting, and how COVID-19 is impacting elections across the country.
