Act 77 of 2019 has created the largest expansion of voting opportunities in decades. The biggest advancement is VOTE BY MAIL. Voting by mail ensures your vote is counted even if you can’t personally get to the polls, if you think you might be unable to vote in person, or just want to avoid the lines!
We STRONGLY ENCOURAGE applying online. This will allow you to get email alerts that you application has been received, approved and mailed to you. Applying by mail will slow down the process.
Apply for an mail-in ballot by clicking link above or printing out a paper application starting 50 days before a Primary or General Election. When it arrives by mail, fill out the ballot and return it back to before the required deadline (8PM on voting day). Thats it!
