Vote by Mail

Two Options to Vote by Mail

Not going to make it to the polling location on election day, but still want to vote? In Pennsylvania there are now two options which allow you to vote by mail. In order to request either an Absentee Ballot or a Mail-In ballot, you must be  a registered voter.

  1. Absentee Ballots
  2. Mail-In Ballots

If you are out of the municipality (in which you live) on election day, have a disability or illness, or if there is some other reasons you will be unable to go to the polling place on election day, you are eligible for an Absentee Ballot. In the application for your Absentee Ballot, you will be required to list the reason for requesting the ballot.

Important Information for Absentee/Mail-In Ballots:

Do not submit multiple applications, as they slow down the Board of Elections' ability to process new applications.

Please be advised that you are only allowed to return your own ballot, unless it is accompanied by an Authorized Designated Agent Form.
