Primary Election Notice: June 2, 2020

The Pennsylvania General Primary Election has been postponed until June 2, 2020. The COVID-19 state of emergency provided the impetuous for the postponement. In order to continue to maintain safe social distancing and avoid the polling place, you may wish to take advantage of Pennsylvania’s new law that allows for a mail-in ballot.

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 or mail-in ballot at votespa.com before May 26, 2020. You do not need to give a reason for requesting a mail-in ballot. You must first be a registered voter, and the last day to register is May 18, 2020.

Absentee and mail-in ballot applications for the June 2, 2020, primary election must be received at  Chester County Voter Services by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 26, 2020.

The deadline to return your voted absentee or mail-in ballot is 8:00 PM on June 2, 2020, election day.
