Department of State Reminds Voters in Counties Affected by Executive Order to Mail Ballot Today

Harrisburg, PA – The Department of State is reminding absentee and mail-in voters in Allegheny, Dauphin, Delaware, Erie, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties that their ballots must be postmarked by today and received by mail at their county election office by 5 p.m. on June 9 to be counted. Voters in these counties may also deliver their ballots to county election offices or to designated ballot collection sites by 8 p.m. today.

In all other counties, there is no change, therefore voted mail-in or absentee ballots must be received in the county election office by 8 p.m. today. In these counties, voters who have not yet returned their voted mail-in ballot are encouraged to hand deliver the ballot to their county election office to ensure it will be counted. In these counties, it is too late to return a ballot by mail.

Governor Tom Wolf signed the executive order Monday to help voters in the six counties affected by civil disturbances, curfews and closures.
