Election Day is Tuesday, November 3.
Voting is one of the most important things U.S. citizens can do. Our city benefits when everyone makes their voice heard.
Whether voters choose to vote by mail or at the polls, all voting options are safe, legitimate, and secure.
This post below will cover how Philadelphians can:
- Register to vote
- Apply to vote by mail-in or absentee ballot
- Turn in a mail-in ballot
- Vote at the polls
Remember, it is recommended that if you are sending any applications or ballots through the mail, make sure to mail them EARLY.
- October 19 is the deadline to register to vote in Pennsylvania.
- October 27 at 5 p.m. is the last day for your county office to receive mail-in and absentee ballot applications
