The commonwealth’s top election official is urging Pennsylvanians planning to vote by mail in the May primary to get their ballot applications in early. 

The deadline to request a mail-in-ballot is May 11. 

Acting Secretary of State Veronica Degraffenreid said on April 13 that voters should apply now, so they have plenty of time to receive and return their ballot before the election.

Once counties have printed ballots,  voters will also have the option of going to their county election office to request a mail-in ballot, fill it out and return it on the spot.

Voters can also cast their ballots in-person on Election Day. 

The spring primary is May 18. All ballots must be received by 8 p.m. that day.
