In October 2019, the Pennsylvania legislature passed Act 77, which gave all registered voters the right to cast their vote using a mail-in ballot. Click here to apply to vote by mail.
The last day to request a mail-in or absentee ballot for the 2024 Primary Election is:
April 16th, 2024 at 5pm.
There are two different types of Mail Ballots:
Absentee Ballot: If you plan to be out of the municipality on election day or if you have a disability or illness, you can request this ballot type. This ballot requires you to list a reason for your request. Absentee Ballots must be applied for and are not automatically issued.
Mail-in Ballot: Any qualified voter may apply for a mail-in ballot. You may simply request this ballot without a reason. Residents have the option to complete one application for a mail in ballot for the primary AND the general election OR they may apply for each election individually. Residents must apply for a ballot, they are not automatically issued to registered voters.
Even if you applied for mail-in ballot annual status in 2023, you need to reapply to receive a ballot for the Primary and/or General Election.
All military and overseas voters qualifying to use the Federal Postcard App should go to FVAP.gov and fill out the application.

If you receive a mail-in/absentee ballot but decide you would prefer to vote in person at your polling place, you can do so. You must bring your ballot in its mailing envelope with you on Election Day, inform the poll workers that you would like to spoil your ballot and vote in-person instead, and surrender it to your precinct Judge of Elections. You can then cast a regular in-person ballot.
If you do not have your mail-in/absentee ballot to surrender at your polling place, you may cast a provisional ballot. This will be counted once the Election Board verifies that you did not vote by mail.
