Pennsylvania primary election Tuesday


HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — Abc27 is your local election headquarters. Pennsylvania’s primary election is Tuesday, June 2.

Pennsylvanians have their choice of voting by mail-in ballot or going to their polling place.

“For the first time, Pennsylvanians have the option of voting by convenient and secure mail-in ballot without having to provide an excuse, thanks to the bipartisan Act 77 of 2019 signed into law by Gov. Wolf last fall,” Secretary Boockvar said. “But all counties, including those still in the COVID-19 pandemic red phase on June 2, will have polling places open for voters who prefer to vote in-person.”
