May 17th Primary Election Voter Information
The Primary Elections will be taking place in Pennsylvania on May 17th 2022. At St Luke we don't tell people how to vote, but we do encourage people to take part in the democratic process as a way of bringing about changes that we feel would lead to a better world. Many of these candidates have information on their websites about how they would address various issues such as health care, education, climate change, immigration, gun violence prevention and the democratic process. Candidates in each group are listed in alphabetical order, based on information from Ballotpedia.

If you plan to vote at your polling place on election day, you can find it here by putting in your address. Polls will be open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day. If you are a first-time voter or are voting at a new polling place, here are helpful tips to learn how to get ready. And be sure to arrange for transportation to your polling place in advance.
If you plan to vote by mail ballot (either no-excuse mail-in or absentee), you must request your ballot by the May 10 deadline. If you are concerned about receiving your mail-in ballot in time, you can apply in person at your county board of elections office, fill out the ballot while you are there, and submit it all in one visit.
If you are voting by mail ballot, there are four steps for completing and returning your ballot:
Read the instructions and mark your ballot with a blue or black pen. There may be races on the back of your ballot, so be sure to check both sides.
Seal your ballot in the inner secrecy envelope marked “official election ballot.” Do not make any marks on the secrecy envelope. You must seal your ballot in this envelope for it to be counted.
Place the inner secrecy envelope in the pre-addressed outer return envelope. You must sign and date the voter’s declaration on the outer envelope for your ballot to be counted.
Return your voted ballot to your county board of elections office – either by mail or by hand delivery. All mail ballots must be received by your county board of elections by 8 p.m. May 17. Mail ballots received after that time, even if postmarked by 8 p.m. May 17, will not count. You can also hand-deliver your ballot by the deadline to a drop box or satellite location if your county provides them. A list of drop boxes and satellite locations will be updated on the Department of State website as information from counties becomes available. You are the only person permitted to return your ballot unless you have a disability and have designated an agent in writing to return your ballot using this form.
