How late are polls open in Pennsylvania?

(WHTM) – It’s not too late for Pennsylvanians to go to the polls and vote for who they want to win for local elections and statewide judicial seats.

On Election Day, November 7th, polls will close at 8:00 p.m. after opening at 7:00 a.m., unless there is a court ruling that would extend the hours. according to the Pennsylvania Department of State website. As long as you wait in line by 8 p.m., you must be able to vote at the polls.

Absentee ballots must be delivered to your county’s election board by 8 p.m. Make sure your mail-in ballot is in the correct envelopes when you drop it off and that the outer return envelope has the correct date and signature. Mail-in ballots cannot be converted into polling places.

A key race on the ballot this year is the Supreme Court. The Democratic nominee is Dan McCaffery (Philadelphia), while the Republican nominee is Judge Carolyn Caluccio (Montgomery).

Pennsylvania law requires you to cast your own ballot. If someone else does this, that vote doesn’t count.
