What you need to know about mail-in ballots for the 2022 Elections

Posted by City of Philadelphia on March 22, 2022

For the PA Primary scheduled for May 17, voters can request a mail-in or absentee ballot online or via regular mail. The application must be received by the Office of Philadelphia Commissioners by May 10, 2022, at 5 p.m. 

Act 77 allows voters in Pennsylvania to choose to vote by mail if they want to, this is called no-excuse mail-in voting. This means you don’t need to provide a reason to vote by mail (such as being out of the country during an election). Instead, Act 77 allows any Pennsylvanian who wants to vote by mail to do so. If you’ve requested a mail-in ballot in a recent election, it was likely that Act 77 allowed you to.
