The initial mailing of requested ballots for the 2022 Primary and Special Elections began April 23 and will continue until all ballots are mailed out.

The Philadelphia County Board of Elections office in City Hall Room 140 opened for in-person mail-ballot voting on April 25. 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 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The deadline to apply for a mail-in ballot is May 10 at 5:00 p.m. If an emergency (an unexpected trip or illness, for example) arises after the deadline for absentee ballot applications, an “emergency absentee application” may be obtained from the Board of Elections, either in person or by mail.

Emergency applications and completed ballots MUST be received by the County Board of Elections no later than 8:00 p.m. on Election Day. For more information, visit the Mail-In and Absentee Ballots page at:
