Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf says he’s considering a mail-in election for the state’s primary on June 2nd.

The election has already been postponed from April 28th due to social distancing concerns. Some lawmakers and county officials concerned about staffing the polls are urging the governor not to hold in-person elections *at all.

Speaking with reporters Tuesday, Governor Tom Wolf says he’s evaluating the options.

“It is something that we ought to consider, and I think that the clear popularity of voting by mail as we’re doing it right now makes it something that we really ought to continue to think about,” said Wolf.

Wolf says he’s not ready to make that decision on that yet – but is having discussions about that now. 

Counties have processed about nearly 300,000 applications for mail-in and absentee ballots, and nearly three times more applicants are from Democrats compared to Republicans.
