NOTICE

9/30/21:  The Lehigh County Office of Voter Registration is alerting residents that all mailings from the Voter Participation Center (VPC) hold no connection with the official Lehigh County Office of Voter Registration and are not affiliated with the County of Lehigh.  The Voter Participation Center’s efforts to increase voter enrollment have caused confusion or concerns with those already registered to vote. The Lehigh County Office of Voter Registration has no part in the development or distribution of the VPC’s mailings. No voter information has ever been shared. Residents should be advised that anyone who receives a VPC mailing can unsubscribe from future mailings by following the instructions found in the letter.

The Lehigh County Office of Voter Registration is the best agency equipped to offer accurate voter registration information, and any Lehigh County resident with voting questions or concerns should contact the office directly at 610-782-3194.

All ballots must be enclosed in the Secrecy mailing envelope before being sealed in the mailing envelope. Secrecy envelopes cannot have any identifying marks.  Mailing envelope must be signed & dated.  Any ballots that fail to do this will not be counted. Full Press Release

Who May Vote by Civilian Absentee Ballot? 

  • Absentee ballots are for voters, who are not military or overseas voters, who have a reason for absence, including voters who will not be in their municipality on Election Day due to work or vacation, voters who are celebrating a religious holiday, voters with disabilities, and voters such as college students who also may be away from the municipality on Election Day, if they don’t choose to vote where they go to school. Absentee ballots are also for those who are unable to attend their polling place due to illness or physical disability.

Who May Vote by Mail-In Ballot?

  • If a voter does not qualify as an absentee voter, they are eligible for a mail-in ballot. An excuse is not required for a mail-in ballot. For example, if the voter won't be absent from a municipality on Election Day and would prefer to vote from home, they may request a mail-in ballot.
