The Philadelphia City Commissioners have confirmed most of the official polling places for the November 3rd election as well as the locations of “satellite election offices” where you can vote absentee in-person before Election Day.

Use our interactive map to look up where your polling place is, as it may be different from where you usually vote. 


Head to one of Philly's satellite election offices. They're even open on weekends! Reduced lines on election day benefits everyone.

For hours and locations, visit this page by the Philadelphia City Commissioners. These locations are your one stop shop to apply, receive, and return your ballot all in a single visit.



The drop boxes at City Hall and 520 N Columbus Blvd (Columbus Blvd side of the building) are now in operation!
