PITTSBURGH – Voters intending to vote in the May 17 Pennsylvania primary election by mail-in or absentee ballot are reminded that applications must be received by the Elections Division no later than 5 PM on Tuesday, May 10, 2022. Anyone who has not yet applied is encouraged to do so now rather than waiting until the deadline to do so.  

Voters may visit the lobby of the County Office Building, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM through May 10 to apply and vote over-the-counter. Voters will receive an application to complete which will be processed while they wait. They will then be provided with their ballot and all materials to vote and may return it while still on site or take it with them for return by the 8 PM deadline on Election Day.  

If not applying in person, the quickest and most efficient way to apply is online at http://votespa.com/ApplyMailBallot.  

As of 10 AM this morning, there have been 112,687 applications approved for mail-in or absentee ballots with 9,310 returned. A daily update on mail-in and absentee ballots is posted on the Elections website at http://alleghenyvotes.com.  

On Election Day   All 1,323 polling places will be open on Election Day from 7 AM until 8 PM. Anyone in line at 8 PM will be allowed to vote. Only voters registered as Democrats or Republicans will be voting in the primary election as they select nominees in the primary to represent their party in the November general election. There are no local ballot questions being considered for the May 17 primary.   As is the case in each election, a number of locations – 33 to be exact – have changed since the November 2021 election. Voters in impacted districts will receive a mailing to advise them of the new location and the former site will also be posted on Election Day if voters go to the wrong site.
