On March 27, Governor Wolf signed Senate Bill 422, which reschedules Pennsylvania’s primary election from April 28 to June 2 due to COVID-19 emergency. Voters now have the option to vote by mail-in ballot rather than going to their polling place on election day.
The LAST DAY to apply for an absentee ballot in Pennsylvania is Tuesday, May 26, 2020. If a voter has already applied for an absentee or mail-in ballot, they do NOT need to re-apply.
What are mail ballots?
An absentee ballot is a paper ballot sent to you by mail. To vote by absentee ballot, you must be registered to vote. You apply to vote by absentee ballot, and if accepted, an absentee ballot is sent to you. You mark and sign your ballot, place it in its official envelope, and return it to the County Election Office by mail or in person.
Any qualified voter may apply for a mail-in ballot. You may simply request the ballot without specifying a reason.
