What are the Election Day polling station procedures for voting for someone who has a mail-in ballot that they no longer wish to use?

  • A voter who has requested a mail-in ballot but decides they would rather vote on the machine can bring their ballot and the return envelopewith them to the polls. The Judge of Election will spoil the ballot and let them cast their vote on the voting machine.

Will voters who vote by mail receive a confirmation that their ballot has been received by the county?

  • Voters who signed up via comwill receive email confirmations when their application is approved, when their ballot is mailed and when their ballot is received by the Elections Office. All other voters can track the status of their ballot at VotesPA.com.


What is the latest date a voter should mail in their ballot and know that it will be counted?

  • It is recommended that voters return their mail-in ballots as soon as possible. The current recommendation is to mail the ballot by Oct. 20.

How and to whom should voters report problems with voting to the county, either before or on Election Day?

How to Vote By Mail

Once you receive your ballot, mark your ballot following the directions.

Place your ballot in the secrecy envelope and then put the secrecy envelope into the official envelope. Be sure to sign the declaration, or your ballot will not count.
