The inaugural election for Pennsylvania’s expanded mail-in ballot option has proven to be popular, and in some counties, more popular than voting in-person.
In 23 of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties, mail-in ballots exceeded the number of in-person votes cast during the state’s June 2 primaries, according to Department of State data.
Note: The estimates from the Department of State are based on the assumption that mail-in voters cast a vote for president.
The 23 counties where mail-in ballots exceeded in-person votes are: Adams, Allegheny, Beaver, Berks, Bucks, Cameron, Centre, Chester, Cumberland, Dauphin, Erie, Forest, Lackawanna, Lancaster, Lehigh, Luzerne, Monroe, Montgomery, Northampton, Philadelphia, Pike, Susquehanna and Westmoreland counties, according to the unofficial results.
The table below shows the number of mail-in ballots and in-person votes cast for each of the 23 counties listed above.
