Ballots Administratively Determined to Have No Secrecy Envelope, or No Signature, No Date, or a Potentially Incorrect Date on Return Envelope

The Philadelphia Board of Elections has mail-in/absentee ballots from voters that have been administratively determined to lack a signature on the declaration envelope or lack a written date on the declaration envelopes. In addition, the Board has mail-in/absentee ballots from voters who wrote a date that may be considered to be potentially incorrect under the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania’s recent decision.

Lists of Philadelphia residents who returned ballots in the above categories are available in PDF or Excel formats here:
No signature: (pdf) or (xlsx)
No date: (pdf) or (xlsx)
Potentially incorrect date: (pdf) or (xlsx)
Not enclosed in a Secrecy Envelope (a.k.a. Naked Ballots): (pdf) or (xlsx)

Lists as of 11/05/2022

All these ballot submissions have the possibility of NOT being counted. It is strongly advised that the voters on these lists request a replacement ballot at the County Board of Elections office in City Hall Room 140 on Saturday or Sunday from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm; Monday, November 7th from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm; or on Election Day from 7:30 am – 7:30 pm to avoid the potential rejection of their ballot. Voters unable to travel to the Board’s office due to a disability may authorize a designated agent pick up a replacement ballot and/or return a completed ballot using the Designated Agent Form.

Voters on these lists may instead cast a Provisional Ballot but should only do so if the voter is unable to request a replacement ballot at City Hall prior to the end of Election Day.
