Vote By Mail Option Available for April 28 Primary Election

As Pennsylvania lawmakers work to contain the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, Senator Dan Laughlin is reminding community residents that they have the option to vote by mail in the upcoming primary election scheduled on April 28.

The option to cast a ballot by mail is part of a broad election modernization package that was approved by the General Assembly and signed into law in 2019. Previously a voter could only request an absentee ballot if he or she would be physically unable to go to the polls on Election Day.

Voters must complete an application for a mail-in ballot no later than 5 p.m. seven days prior to the election, and completed ballots must be returned no later than 8 p.m. on the day of the election. Pennsylvanians can learn more about voting by mail and complete an application for a mail-in ballot at
