HARRISBURG (KDKA) - The Pennsylvania Department of State says the state could be on track to set a record for participation in a municipal primary if the current pace of mail-in ballot applications continues.

So far, the department says more than 587,000 voters have already applied for mail-in ballots for the May 18 election. More than 18,000 have applied for absentee ballots.

The bipartisan no-excuse mail-in voting was signed into law by Gov. Tom Wolf in 2019.

The deadline to apply for a mail-in or absentee ballot is May 11. Ballots must be received by the county election office by May 18. You can learn more here.
