Where do I return my ballot or vote in person?

IMPORTANT: Voters who have not yet cast their mail or absentee ballot are urged to hand-deliver their voted ballots as soon as possible to their county election office or other county drop off location or drop box. Ballots must be delivered by 8pm on Election Day but the sooner the better. Voters should no longer use postal service delivery as it is too late to guarantee your ballot will be delivered in time.

SOME DROP BOXES AND SATELLITE COUNTY ELECTION OFFICES CLOSE BEFORE 8PM ON ELECTION DAY. PLEASE CHECK THE HOURS OF YOUR COUNTY ELECTION OFFICE, DROP BOX, OR DROP OFF LOCATION.

If you have not returned your voted mail ballot by the deadline and you want to vote in person, you have two options.

1. Bring your ballot and the pre-addressed outer return envelope to your polling place to be voided. You can then vote on your county鈥檚 voting system.

2. If you don鈥檛 have your ballot, you can vote by provisional ballot at your polling place. Your county board of elections will verify that you didn鈥檛 vote by mail before counting your provisional ballot.

Commissioner Delma Rivera, had the honor and privilege to introduce Governor Tom Wolf during the press conference at the YMCA/ York Pa. We are extremely proud for all she does for the Latino community in York Pa. Go Delma!!!!
Hola buen dia, vivo en Erie! Trabajaba de interprete, aplique bajo PUA y mi ultima semana de empleo fue la 1ra semana de abril. He sometido pay stubs, cualquier otra documentacion que me pudiera ayudar y afortunadamente obtuve un credito parcial. Lamentablemente al sol de hoy no se me ha pagado. Estuve expuesta a un posible COVID de parte de una clienta que no divulgo sus sintomas hasta el ultimo momento. Estuve 14 dias en cuarentena medica. No he estado mentalmente estable; estoy bajo depresion y supervision de un siquiatra. Ahora no estoy 100% en condiciones de trabajar, por eso no he buscado otro trabajo, posiblemente interpretando desde casa por el susto que pase. Gracias y que tengan buen dia!
History of Gacla: Executive Director Ms. Luz B Colon and Dr Natalia Ortiz at the public hearing addressing the opioids crisis . #Gacla presente addressing the #Airbridge crisis between Puerto Rico and Philadelphia. That was the first time that I met the community leader Charito Morales who testified as well.
More of the #GalaArgentina. #Gaclapresente
I had the honor of representing #Gacla at the #GalaArgentina this past November 23,2019 at #CitylineHiltonhotel . Governor Wolf sent his regards through a proclamation that was presented to the audience of 400.
Here are some of the Latino's who ran this election. If you have any photos of anyone we may have missed, please feel free to inbox us and we will gladly post. Thank you!
On behalf of the Governor鈥檚 Advisory Commission on Latino Affairs, we are proud to congratulate all of the extraordinary Latinos that ran in this years primary elections across the Commonwealth. Some races were neck in neck, and some were easily won, however, our fight isn't over as we continue a different phase, and a different approach to the legislative body. It gives us great pride as we see more Latinos in political leadership roles. Let's continue to move Pennsylvania forward for all Latinos of this great Keystone state. Our goal and mission for this Commission to support, and partner with all levels of Government for the greater good of the Latino Community in PA. To all Latinos that made history, had or did not have a victory, and gave it their all, Congratulations,and let's continue to work on this movement as Pennsylvania continues to serve the growing Latino community. #GACLAPRESENTE #GovernorTomWolf #sisepuede #latinosinpower
