Philadelphia City Commissioners
The initial mailing of requested ballots for the 2021 General and Special Elections was mailed out on September 30, 2021 and will continue until all ballots are mailed out.
The Philadelphia County Board of Elections office in City Hall 140 opened for in-person mail-ballot voting on September 30.
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 140 office will be open from 9a.m. to 5p.m. Monday through Friday. The County Board of Elections office will 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.
