Mail-in ballots for Pennsylvania primary election to be mailed this week, officials say

Mail-in ballots for the April 23 primary election will be mailed to voters this week, the Allegheny County Election Division announced.

The deadline to request a mail-in ballot is April 16. Voters who are interested in voting by mail are encouraged to apply as soon as possible to ensure timely delivery. The deadline to register to vote in the April 23 election is Monday, April 8.

Registered Allegheny County voters may also apply for a mail-in ballot and receive the ballot on the spot, also known as “over the counter” voting, starting Tuesday in the lobby of the County Office Building at 542 Forbes Avenue. Over-the-counter voting is available Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. After the April 16 deadline for mail-in voting applications, voters who need to vote before April 23 have to request an emergency ballot at the County Office Building.

Voters who received their ballot in the mail may return it via the mail or at a ballot return site. Ballot return sites will be open Saturday, April 13 and April 20, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, April 14 and April 21, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
