How to Vote By Mail

Once you receive your ballot, mark your ballot following the directions.

Place your ballot in the secrecy envelope and then put the secrecy envelope into the official envelope. Be sure to sign the declaration, or your ballot will not count.

Every county will have a secure drop box for your ballots.
Postage will be paid for ALL mail-in & absentee ballots

Voting Over-the-Counter and Drop Box Locations

Due to COVID-19, leading up to the November 3 election, Allegheny County voters have an additional secure and accessible option – voting over-the-counter and returning voted ballots at fully-staffed County offices. 

More information, including a map, can be found here.

Election Day Reminders

Polls open at 7:00 am and close at 8:00 pm

If you requested a mail-in ballot, you can still vote in-person on election day if you present your ballot & both envelopes to a poll worker.

If you are in line before the polls close, you are allowed to cast your vote

Request a provisional ballot if your name is not on your polling location's roster

Contact your county election officials if you experience issues at the polls
