Today Philadelphia moves forward with voting and extends mail-in ballots by a week.
Registered voters can expect to vote at their polling locations, for Germantown: Mastery Pickett Charter School, Lingelbach School, Lonnie Young Recreation Center and Happy Hollow Recreation Center according to The Inquirer.
For mail-in ballots, Gov. Tom Wolf issued an executive order that will allow voters to return their ballots by 8 p.m.on June 9.
“I can’t do anything about the election day, but I am extending the time to actually get votes in,” Wolf said at a Philadelphia news conference. “So if you vote and the vote gets in by next Tuesday… it’ll count. An extra seven days.”
If Philadelphia should be put under curfew today, voters will not be affected. The polls will still close at 8p.m., and anyone in line by 8 p.m. will be allowed to cast their vote.
Initially the city postponed the primary election to today, June 2, due to the effects of the coronavirus COVID-19. Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and four other counties are the only PA areas to be allowed to submit mail-in ballots with the new deadline.
