These are uncertain times for all of us. With the election fast approaching, I wanted to take a minute to inform you all about a new program accessible to all Pennsylvanians: vote by mail. Thanks to a new law passed in 2019, Pennsylvania now has no-excuse mail-in voting. That means you can get your ballot mailed to your home -- no need to go to your polling place. This process takes about two minutes, but it can be complicated, so we're going to walk you through step-by-step instructions on how to request your mail-in ballot.
If you have a valid Pennsylvania driver's license or photo ID: you can apply for your mail-in ballot online at www.votespa.com/ApplyMailBallot. You'll be asked three questions: are you a military or overseas voter, will you be absentee from your home on the date of the election, and do you have an illness or physical disability. This is to determine whether a mail-in or absentee ballot is right for you. If you answer "yes" to any of these questions, you will be directed to apply for an absentee ballot. If you answer "no" to all, you will be able to apply for a mail-in ballot.
