This page will be updated at least weekly on Thursdays with election information updates until the November 2020 General Election.
Please note that while most polling locations have been finalized, the final locations are subject to change up until 2 weeks prior to the election. All registered voters should receive a postcard in the mail from Allegheny County Elections Division informing them of their polling location after all locations have been finalized. The best way to check your polling location is by Checking Your Voter Registration Status
Early Voting in person is available. To vote early in person, you must fill out an application for a mail-in ballot. Either bring that application or the actual ballot to one of the Additional Election Offices during the scheduled business hours listed. Early voting in person is also available Monday through Friday 8:30 pm to 4:30 pm at the Elections Division Office downtown at 542 Forbes Ave, Room 601, Pittsburgh PA, 15222.
Please see the Important Links section for information about Mail-In Voting, Absentee Voting, Voter Registration, and Allegheny County Election information.
This coming weekend, October 24th and 2th, is the final weekend to vote early at satellite polling locations.

To register to vote online visit: https://www.pavoterservices.pa.gov/Pages/VoterRegistrationApplication.aspx.

Today, the Elections Division announced that an error by the company contracted to handle the printing, collating and mailing of ballots resulted in 28,879 Allegheny County voters receiving incorrect ballots. Those mailings are being corrected and new, correct ballots will be delivered to the post office Thursday, Oct. 15 – Saturday, Oct. 17. Most are expected to be delivered to voters the week of Oct. 19.
As we posted last week, the new polling location for District 6-1, 6-2 & 6-3 (previously The Residences at Logan) is Bethel Masonic Hall. Allegheny County lists the address for this site as 3601 Industrial Blvd.; however, it should be accessed from McNary Place (761). We hope this information is helpful!
We’ll continue to update our Election information page weekly as we receive updates from the County.
According to the Allegheny County Elections Division, several voters have received the wrong ballot in the mail; the issue is with the Ward and District. Therefore, we’re encouraging those who’ve received or will be receiving a mail-in ballot to check the Ward and District printed at the top and bottom of the ballot against your voter registration at https://www.pavoterservices.pa.gov/pages/voterregistrationstatus.aspx.
If you find a disparity, contact the Elections Division via email at email@example.com or by phone at 412-350-4500. You’ll need to provide the name, registered voting address, municipality, ward, and district of the ballot you received (printed at the top and bottom of the ballot) and, if known, your municipality, ward and district.
Those impacted should keep their declaration and security envelopes, as well as the instructions, and destroy the incorrect ballot. ONLY the correct ballot will be mailed out to the voter.
The Elections Division is working to determine what happened and how many voters may be impacted and will share that information when they have additional information.
