Allegheny County Elections officials are reminding residents that mail-in ballots for next week’s primary must be at the elections office by 8 p.m. on June 2.
Postmarks are irrelevant—if the county doesn’t have your ballot in-hand by 8 p.m. on primary day, your vote won’t count.
The easiest way to ensure that your ballot accepted is to put in the mail as soon as possible (and make sure that you fill out all of the required lines on the envelope).
If you want a paper trail confirming that your ballot was received by the county, you can use Priority Mail, Express Mail, U.S. Postal tracking, UPS, FedEx, or any similar delivery service.
Or, if you love to live in the edge, you can also drop off your ballot in person at the County Elections Department [map]. You have until 8 p.m. on Tuesday.
For residents who plan to vote in person, Bridgeville will have only one polling location open for this primary. All voting will take place at the Bridgeville Volunteer Fire Department [map] from 7 a.m to 8 p.m.
Today was the last day to request a mail-in ballot, so if you haven’t already done that, plan on voting in person next Tuesday.
