2020 Primary Election Revised Polling Locations

Montgomery County officials have instituted a "pandemic election plan", to temporarily reduce the number of polling places for the June 2 primary election in response to the COVID-19 outbreak in our region. Officials have moved polling places to empty public school buildings for the primary election only. See your new polling location in red under your usual polling location. If your polling location was previously located in a public school, it will remain there. For additional information please visit the Montgomery County Voter Services website by clicking here.

**please note that the polling location for District 2-3 will be at Montgomery Elementary School in Montgomery Township**

Voter Registration

To qualify as a voter, a resident must register after meeting four requirements: (1) eighteen years of age, (2) a U.S. citizen for at least one month, (3) a resident of the election district at least 30 days, (4) a resident of Pennsylvania for at least 30 days. Voters who move within the state within 30 days prior to an election may vote in that election at their previous election district. Registration is permanent unless an elector moves to another election district or fails to vote for two consecutive years.

Electors may pick up voter registration applications at most public buildings: Municipal Buildings, Libraries, Liquor Stores, Post Offices. Fill out the application and submit it to the Voter Registration Office. Registration books close 30 days before any election and are reopened five days after a Primary Election and 30 days after General or Municipal Election. Electors may also register to vote online.

Primary Elections

The third Tuesday in May is Primary Election Day in Pennsylvania except in presidential election years when the Primary is held on the fourth Tuesday in April. Only voters registered in a political party can vote for that party's candidates in a Primary although independent voters may vote on referendum questions that appear on Primary Election ballots.

General Elections

General Elections when state and federal offices are filled occur in even numbered years while Municipal elections, including county offices, are held in odd numbered years. Both are held on the Tuesday after the first Monday in November. All elections are supervised by the County Board of Elections. The polls are open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Absentee Ballots

Absentee ballot applications are available in person or by mail up to one week before the election from the County Board of Elections. Electors may also pick up absentee ballot applications at most public buildings: Municipal Centers, Libraries, Liquor Stores, and Post Offices. Emergency application for causes not known earlier are acceptable up to 5:00 p.m. of the Friday before the election.
