Polling location change announced

The Allegheny County Elections Division on May 15, 2020 issued the full list of consolidated polling place locations for the Tuesday, June 2 primary election.

The polling location for the 2020 primary in McCandless will be CCAC North, 8701 Perry Highway.

If this situation makes you uncomfortable or if you are concerned about lines, don’t forget that mail-in voting also is an option this year. The county’s Division of Elections this month will be mailing mail-in ballot applications to every registered, eligible voter in Allegheny County who has not already submitted an application. Voters don’t have to wait to receive an application but can go online now to VotesPA and apply online for a mail-in ballot. The deadline to apply for a mail-in ballot is Tuesday, May 26 at 5 pm. The deadline to return your completed mail-in ballot is Tuesday, June 2 at 8 pm.

With numerous local election board officials being reluctant to serve on Election Day and numerous owners of polling locations expressing concerns regarding exposure to COVID-19, the county approved a resolution to consolidate its more than 1,300 polling locations to about 200 to 300.
