|Absentee Voting Just Got Easier!
Previously in Pennsylvania, the only option for completing an absentee ballot application was through mail or hand-delivery to a county election office. As of this week, you will be able to apply online for an absentee ballot for the Nov. 5 election. This will quicken the application process and make it more accessible for thousands of voters. The deadline to apply by paper or online is 5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29. You will still have to mail or hand-deliver your completed ballot to your county election office by the deadline, which is 5 p.m. on the Friday before the election, or Nov. 1 this year. For now, you will need a PennDOT driver license or ID number for your absentee ballot to be processed electronically.
