  • Share on Facebook

The Philadelphia City Commissioners have opened in-person mail-in voting offices where voters can register or update their voter registration, apply for a mail-in ballot in person, receive their ballot, complete their ballot, and return it, all in one visit.Any voters can utilize any of the satellite election offices throughout the city. Nine offices are now open through Election Day, Tuesday, November 3rd, with more locations to be announced as we approach Election Day.

The hours of operation are as follows: 11:30am to 6:30pm, Monday through Thursday, and 9:30am to 4:30pm Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

The deadline to register to vote is October 19th

The deadline to request a mail-in or absentee ballot is October 27th.

Voters may only drop off their own ballot unless the voter is physically unable to personally submit their Absentee or Mail-in Ballot and has designated an agent to deliver their ballot and the completed forms are submitted with the ballot. The Designation and Certification of Agent Forms can be downloaded below."

The satellite election offices will not issue replacement ballots to those voters who already have requested an absentee or mail-in ballot until October 6th, in order to avoid duplicating ballots already being delivered in the mail, thus freeing the space for those who have yet to apply.

All Satellite Election Offices have a wheelchair accessible entrance. Language Assistance for limited-English proficient voters is also available. If you need reasonable accommodations or have questions about the accessibility of a location near you, please contact vote@phila.gov

The funding for the satellite offices would come from the $10 million grant from the nonpartisan, nonprofit Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL). The City Commissioners have also used this grant to provide additional pay for poll workers and extra cleaning for polling places. The department has also purchased over $5 million worth of equipment to send and process mail-in ballots faster and count the votes both quickly and accurately.
