The election laws have changed and Pennsylvania now allows for mail-in voting. This may be appropriate for those who wish to maintain social distancing through April.
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 the Chester County Voter Services.
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.
Mail-in ballot – If you aren’t an absentee voter, you may apply for a mail-in ballot. You may simply request this ballot without a reason.
Absentee and mail-in ballot applications for the April 28, 2020, primary election must be received at Chester County Voter Services by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, April 21, 2020.
At this time the primary election scheduled for April 28, 2020, has not be changed because of the COVID-19 outbreak. Please visit votespa.com for the latest.
