In-person voting locations for the 2020 general election in Philadelphia are set. The City Commissioners have found space for 718 polling places on Nov. 3. That’s nearly four times as many as were open for the June primary.

Which one is yours? You can use this tool on the Pa. Department of State’s website to find out.

Not everyone will be voting in person this year, since anyone can vote early using a mail ballot. If you already have your ballot, find instructions for filling it out here, and visit this link for a map of places to drop it off — either at a satellite election office or a secure drop box.

What if you requested a mail ballot but now want to vote in person? You can do that, as long as you bring your ballot and envelopes with you. Find out more here. However, know that if you do this, it’ll cause some holdups in the line on Nov. 3, because the judge of elections will have to fill out an affidavit before you walk into the voting booth. For this reason, and for COVID safety, election officials are urging people to vote early if they feel comfortable doing so.

The polling locations below will be staffed by 8,500 poll workers, who will receive a boosted $200 payment for the day’s work, plus $50 for training.
