KNOW HOW TO VOTE

IF YOU HAVE A MAIL-IN BALLOT YOU HAVE NOT YET RETURNED

  • If you have a mail-in ballot that you haven’t returned yet, it is STRONGLY recommended that you drop it off and do not mail it. Find out where to return your ballot at iwillvote.com.
  • Make sure that you fill out the ballot in all black or blue pen (preferably black) and fill in all dots completely. Seal your ballot in the secrecy envelope before putting it in the return envelope. Make sure you sign the return envelope.
  • If you have questions, make sure you call the PA Voter Assistance Hotline at 1-833-PAVOTES.

 

IF YOU REQUESTED A MAIL-IN BALLOT BUT IT HAS NOT ARRIVED

  • If you requested a mail-in ballot and it has not yet arrived, you can get a replacement ballot at your County’s Board of Elections Office, or possibly a satellite location depending on the county. Find your County Board of Election’s office at votespa.com/county. Call the County Board of Elections Office ahead of time if you can to make sure they offer replacement ballots.
  • If you are unable to get a replacement ballot, you can go to your polling location and request to vote by provisional ballot.
  • If you have questions, make sure you call the PA Voter Assistance Hotline at 1-833-PAVOTES.

 

IF YOU ARE VOTING AT THE POLLS 

  • Make sure you know where your polling place is. You can find it at votespa.com/status.
  • There may be long lines and it may be chilly – make sure you’re prepared with warm clothes and snacks!
  • Polls will be open 7am until 8pm.  If you are in line by 8pm, you can vote.
  • If you have any problems at the polls, or witness any voter intimidation or voter suppression, make sure you call the PA Voter Assistance Hotline at 1-833-PAVOTES.
