What if you're not voting by mail? Your polling place will probably be different from the usual one. Check your current polling place here (remember to wear a mask and leave lots of time, polls are open 7am-8pm): https://www.philadelphiavotes.com/index.php?option=com_voterapp&tmpl=component

The ballot is a bit long this election, so you might want to check up on your sample ballot before you leave to vote in person: https://www.philadelphiavotes.com/index.php?option=com_voterapp&tmpl=component#ballots

Here are our endorsements for the State House primary races: https://www.5thsq.org/endorsements_for_2020_state_representative

If you requested a mail-in ballot but haven't received one, or if your ballot gets damaged or lost, you can vote in person using a provisional ballot at your polling place. Just let the pollworkers know.
