Absentee Voting

What I need to know about voting by Absentee Ballot due to the Voter ID Law?

  • New identification requirements are in place now.
  • Voters must provide PA drivers license number, last 4 digits of Social Security Number, or a copy of an accepted photo ID when applying for an absentee ballot.
  • Voters may provide identifying number to county over the phone, by email, fax or mail.
  • Identification will be verified by the county board of elections before the voters ballot will be counted.  Voters have 6 days following an election to provide the necessary identification.
  • UOCAVA voters and voters affected by the Voting Accessibility for Elderly and Handicapped Act are exempt.

Notice:
You can not apply for an absentee ballot or register to vote via email. Applications can be printed from the Voter website under the Absentee Ballot Link above. All Applications must be completed and signed by the applicant before they can be processed.
