Provisional Ballot Info and Where to Vote for 2020 Presidential Election in Pa., N.J. and Del.

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- This is undoubtedly both an unusual and critical election, so in an effort to make your vote count, we've put together a voter guide.

A lot of emphasis has been placed on mail-in voting this election season, and more people took advantage of that opportunity than ever before.

However, many people are still planning to vote in-person on November 3. If you are one of them, it's best to double-check your polling location as it may have changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

VOTING BY PROVISIONAL BALLOT

Pennsylvania:

If you changed your mind about voting by mail in Pennsylvania, or there was a problem with your mail-in vote, you can go to a polling place to cast a ballot.

Your mail-in ballot will be voided so you can vote on the machine in-person. If you don't take your mail-in ballot with you, you can still vote at the polls but with a provisional ballot, essentially a paper ballot.

If you are a registered voter but your eligibility to vote at your polling place is uncertain, you have the right to vote with a provisional ballot.
