Voting by Absentee Ballot


Absentee ballots

are available for those who are not able to go to the polls on Election Day, because of illness, disability, vacation, employment and military service. This process can take several weeks, so plan ahead!
You must request an absentee ballot application from the County Board of Elections or download a copy from the website.
This form should be completed and sent to the Election Bureau. They will mail you an Absentee ballot.
The Absentee Ballot must be returned to the Election Bureau by 5 PM Friday before the election. Military absentee ballots can be received up to 7 days after the election.

PA’s Department of Election’s website VotesPA provides you with a huge amount of information to help make registering and voting easier.
