From the PA Dept of State:

The emergency application period began May 14 at 5:00 pm until Friday, May 17 at 5:00 pm for those voters who are voting by absentee ballot because of a disability or absence from their municipality that could not have been known prior to the Tuesday before the election. Voted absentee ballots must be received from these voters no later than 5:00 pm on Friday, May 17, 2013, in order to be counted.

The second emergency period begins on Friday, May 17 at 5:00 pm until the day of the Primary, May 21, 2013 at 8:00 pm. The voter must request through the appropriate Court of Common Pleas an emergency absentee ballot, if the voter becomes physically disabled or ill after 5:00 pm on the Friday prior to the election; or if the voter learns after 5:00 pm on the Friday prior to the election that the voter will be absent from the voter’s municipality of residence on Election Day because of the voter’s business, duties or occupation. Voted absentee ballots must be received from these voters no later than 8:00 pm on the day of the Primary, May 21, 2013.
