Election 2022

Here are Philly’s 700+ polling places for the November election

Several dozen have changed since the primary, and over 100 are different than in 2020, so it’s good to double check before you head out to vote.

When polling places open on Tuesday,  Nov. 8, Philadelphia voters will cast ballots in races that will decide Pennsylvania’s next governor, U.S. senator, positions in the state legislature, new members of City Council, and a couple proposed city charter changes.

View a map of all Philly’s polling places for the November election below.

Locations that are fully accessible been designated with blue wheelchair icons on the map below and can be found in list form here, along with details for how to request an alternative ballot if you are age 65 and older or are living with a disability.

While most polling places are set up in the expected schools, libraries, and municipal spaces, some are a bit more interesting. Philadelphians will vote in performing arts venues like the Kimmel Center, and salons like Hair Vyce Studio.

A number of polling places have shifted locations since prior elections. Fifty-four divisions will notice a change in location from the May 2022 primary election, according to the Office of the City Commissioners. More than 100 will see a change from the 2020 general election — the last time any federal seats were up for grabs.

So whether you’ve voted in every local election for decades or haven’t thought about your ballot since the presidential race, be sure to double check where you’re supposed to vote. You can do that by entering your home address in the city’s lookup tool here.

Find detailed info about each candidate and question in our Procrastinator’s Guide here. You can bookmark that guide and take it with you to the polls.

Important note: If you’re voting by mail, you cannot drop off our ballot at these polling places — instead, check out Billy Penn’s map of ballot drop boxes and staffed drop-off locations around the city.

If you have a mail ballot and changed your mind, you can still vote in person, but you MUST bring your ballot *and* the envelopes to the polls with you, so a poll worker can “spoil” them and make sure no one votes twice. If you requested a mail ballot but lost or never received it, you can go to a polling place and talk to the judge of elections there. They’ll give you what’s called a provisional ballot, which will be counted last, only after election workers are certain your mail ballot was never turned in.

A few other reminders:

  • Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. But even if you’re still waiting at 7:58, stay in line! You’re guaranteed the opportunity to vote as long as you arrive before the polls close.
  • If it’s your first time voting at a particular polling place, you’ll need to show a form of ID that lists your name and address (a list of acceptable forms is available here.)
  • Residents of Ward 22, Divisions 6 & 7 should call 215-686-1523 for more details about their polling place, per the City Commissioners, as the location has not yet been finalized.

The 708 locations in Philadelphia are mapped below, along with details about the wards and divisions they serve.
