On March 27, Governor Wolf signed Senate Bill 422, which reschedules Pennsylvania’s primary election from April 28 to June 2 due to the COVID-19 emergency. Voters have the option to vote by mail-in ballot rather than going to their polling place on election day. Mail-in ballot applications will be accepted through Tuesday, May 26, 2020. If a voter has already applied for an absentee or mail-in ballot, they do NOT need to reapply.
If you chose to vote in-person on Primary Election Day, the polling location for all Ben Avon residents is at the Ben Avon Fire Station, 7219 Church Avenue. Voting hours are from 7am – 8pm.
Everyone can do their part to help us respond to this emerging public health threat. Routine use of these measures by individuals and their families can go a long way to prevent the spread of illness and help us respond to an outbreak:
