HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania’s once-delayed spring primary in about two weeks will feature legislative and congressional races, a first run for some new paper-record voting systems and the first use of newly legalized mail-in ballots.
Voter registration was ending Monday for the June 2 primary.
The latest figures show Pennsylvanians embracing a new vote-by-mail system. More than 1 million Pennsylvania voters have requested mail-in ballots, including 700,000 Democrats and 310,000 Republicans.
Those who vote in person will see the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in the form of social distancing guidelines and fewer polling places.
State election officials are urging people to check online to see whether their precincts have been moved or consolidated.
