The Philadelphia County Board of Elections office in City Hall 140 is open for in-person mail-ballot voting. Voters should enter through the South Gate of City Hall. Voters may request a mail-in ballot in-person, receive it, vote, and return it all at the same visit. The City Hall office  is open from 9am to 5pm Monday through Friday.

The County Board of Elections office did not issue replacement ballots to those voters who already have requested an absentee or mail-in ballot until October 7, in order to avoid duplicating ballots already being delivered in the mail.

A total of 13 drop boxes were opened on October 1. Three more new drop boxes were added on October 13, which brings the total of 16 drop boxes. Voters from any part of the city can return their own voted ballot. These drop boxes are accessible 24/7, and they are located at:

City Hall (South Broad Apron): 1400 John F Kennedy Blvd.

Riverview Place: 520 N Columbus Blvd.

The Eastern State Penitentiary: 2027 Fairmount Ave.

Markward Playground: 400 S Taney St. (Temporarily closed due to construction)
