Voting is already underway for those who have already requested mail ballots for the primary. Residents can still apply for mail or absentee ballots by 5 p.m. on May 11.
For those who choose to vote by mail, counties are providing secure drop-off locations for ballots. The drop-off locations for Bucks, Chesco, Delco, and Montco can be found online. WHYY’s Billy Penn has a map of dropboxes in Philly.
Historically, primaries haven’t had as high a turnout as presidential elections. Still, between four ballot questions and all the statewide judgeships on the line, this primary’s results could influence policy over the next decade.
Included in the ballot questions are proposals that would limit the governor’s powers when it comes to a disaster declaration. To read more about the four ballot questions and what they would do, check out Spotlight PA’s guide.
