Reader Poll: PA Primary Should Be An All-Mail Election

While Gov. Tom Wolf’s administration announced on Wednesday that it’s sending 4.2 million postcards to primary voters and launching an awareness campaign encouraging vote by mail on radio, television, social media, streaming services, mobile apps and email, a majority of PoliticsPA readers voiced their support for the upcoming June 2 primary to be an all-mail election to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

52% of votes, 298 people, in the weeklong PoliticsPA poll said that the state’s June 2 primary should be an all-mail election, while 48%, 278 people, voted against this idea, which has been pushed by some of the state’s most populous counties

576 people weighed in on this poll.

    No, it should not be a MANDATORY mail-in vote, but everybody should have that option. This “yes/no” poll therefore puts me in the “no” category, which is misleading. I support mail-in vote and asked for one online (but still waiting to receive ballot, despite getting confirmation email weeks ago).

    1. Bill says:

      Everybody already does have the option

        I take it this also means that you’re willing to work the polls considering the majority of poll workers are retired & at increased risk for Covid19 infection?
