Mail-in Voting for April 28 Primary Election

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.

If you want to vote by mail in this year’s primary just request an absentee ballot at  You do not need to give a reason for requesting a mail-in ballot.
