Board of Elections Set to Mail 137K Ballot Applications

2021 vote

Bucks County voters on the permanent mail-in list should soon receive a vote-by-mail application for 2023 elections.

The Bucks County Board of Elections in the coming weeks will mail about 137,000 applications to registered voters who requested on a previous mail-in ballot application to be placed on the permanent mail-in list. This annual mailing is required by law.

Pennsylvania voters on the permanent mail-in list must reapply annually to continue to receive ballots by mail. This can be done by returning the supplied paper application or online at Vote.Pa.gov/ApplyMailBallot

Voters who complete and submit the application prior to the deadline will receive a ballot for all elections in which they are eligible to vote during the calendar year.

The online application to receive mail-in ballots for 2023 is already live, and applications are being accepted and processed by the county Board of Elections Office. You do not need to wait to receive your application in the mail before applying for a ballot online.

Voters who do not wish to receive ballots through the mail for elections in 2023 should simply disregard the notice. Those who wish to be removed from the mailer can sign and return the page of the letter that reads “stop sending me this notice and application each year.”

Because Pennsylvania is a closed primary state, voters who are not registered in a major political party cannot vote in a primary unless there is a question or referendum on the ballot. 

If there are no questions or referenda on the primary ballot, permanent mail-in voters who are not registered with a major political party who submit a permanent renewal only receive a ballot for the Nov. 7 Municipal Election.

The deadline to apply for a mail-in ballot for the May 16 primary election is May 9. Voters are encouraged to apply early as completed ballots need to be received by the Board of Elections Office by 8 p.m. on the date of the election. Postmarks do not count.

Information on drop box hours and locations will be made available in the coming months. Check back for updates at buckscounty.gov/Elections.

For more information on the permanent mailing list visit Vote.Pa.gov/AnnualList.
