During the primary election on June 2, 2020 all registered voters in the city of Reading can vote on the five ballot questions. This includes voters registered as Green, independent, Libertarian, none, or other.

Two questions deal with hiring of the City Council and City Auditor staffs, one deals with the separation of the Departmemt of Finance and Department of Human Resources from the Department of Administrative Services, one deals with the separation of solicitors for the Executive [Mayor] and Legislative [Council] branches of the city government, and one deals with imposition of term limits for the elected offices of Mayor, City Council President, City Council members, and City Auditor.

Voters who are not registered as Democrats or Republicans who have requested mail-in ballots have received non-partisan ballots as well as ballot questions explanations.
