Mail ballots must be received by county elections officials by 8 p.m. on election day — postmarks don’t count. State and local officials urge voters to return their ballots as early as possible. In the final few days, if possible, voters should return their ballots in person, instead of relying on the Postal Service, which can take several days to deliver the ballot.

To that end, Philadelphia also has 16 mail ballot drop boxes where voters can return a ballot leading up to that deadline.
