Absentee ballots ensure your vote is counted even if you can’t personally get to the polls on Election Day or Primary Day. If you think you might be unable to vote in person, please apply for an absentee ballot by clicking the link below, then fill out the ballot and mail it back to the Montgomery County Board of Elections, PO Box 311, Norristown, PA 19404.

Absentee ballot applications also are available at municipal buildings, libraries, state liquor stores, and your state legislators’ offices.

To UPS or FedEx your ballot, send to Montgomery County Board of Elections, 1 Montgomery Plaza, Suite 602, 425 Swede Street, Norristown, PA 19401.  This also is the place you would go if you want to get the ballot in person and fill it out on the spot.

If you have voted absentee but later wish to go to the polls in person, you may do so; just notify the Judge of Elections, who will then tear up your absentee ballot and issue you a slip to vote in the booth.


Deadline to submit an application for an absentee ballot for the May 2018 Primary Day election is by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 8, 2018.  Your finished ballot must be received in the Board of Elections office by 5 p.m. Friday, May 11, 2018.

Please note this deadline means the ballot must be in the office, not simply postmarked.  Please also note that the U.S. Postal Service can take up to five days to deliver regular mail, so if you are close to the deadline, we suggest you visit the Board of Elections office in person.  One Montgomery Plaza, suite 602, on Swede Street in Norristown.
