It's not hard to feel overwhelmed by the number of political ads this time of year and it can be hard to navigate to find actual helpful information on voting. To help make it through the masses we've put together some helpful resources to make sure that your vote is heard this November.
To register to vote:
1. Fill out a voter registration application form. If you choose to mail in your form it must be received by 10/19/2020.
2. Your county voter registration office reviews the form.
3. If your registration is accepted, you will get a voter registration card in the mail. The voter registration card will show your name, address, party affiliation, and the address where you will vote.

Request a Mail-in or Absentee Ballot:
In Pennsylvania, you now have two options for mail ballots. You may either choose a mail-in ballot or an absentee ballot to request, complete and return to your county election office.
- Mail-in ballot – Any qualified voter may apply for a mail-in ballot. You may simply request this ballot without a reason.
- Absentee ballot – If you plan to be out of the municipality on election day or if you have a disability or illness, you should request this ballot type, which still requires you to list a reason for your ballot.
Track your Mail-in Ballot:
