UPDATED: Tuesday, 5:56 p.m. 

The deadline to receive mail-in ballots has now been moved to 5 p.m. June 9, and the ballot must be postmarked by Tuesday, June 2.

The deadline to hand deliver absentee or mail-in ballots remains 8 p.m. June 2.

Wolf said the counties with the extended deadline are part of an emergency declaration due to civil unrest.

This is the first year Pennsylvania is allowing no-excuse mail-in ballots.

This extension does not apply to Chester County.

Bucks County won an emergency petition late Tuesday that extends their deadline for mail-in ballots. Any ballot postmarked by June 1 that arrives before June 9 will be counted. Any ballots that come in after Tuesday's 8 p.m. deadline will be kept seperate in case there is an appeal.
