PAR Launches Vote-by-mail Outreach Campaign for 2020 Primary

Pennsylvania’s primary election has been delayed until Tuesday, June 2. For the first time, Pennsylvanians have the option for excuse-free, mail-in balloting. Thanks to a new state law, any registered voter can apply for a mail-in ballot to participate in our elections.

Voting by mail is safe, secure and simple – just follow these three steps.

You can verify that you are registered to vote through VotesPa.com. Click on the “Find Voter Registration Status form” and follow the prompts to ensure you’re registered.

If you’re not registered, you can do that online too. The deadline to register for the primary election is Tuesday, May 18.

The easiest way to request your ballot is online through VotesPa.com. But you have many options if you prefer another method – by phone, by mail or in person at your county election office.

You must request your mail-in ballot by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 26.

Once you’ve requested your mail-in ballot, you can also track it through the Department of State website.

You’ll receive your ballot in the mail, then simply fill it out, sign it and return it to your county election office.


All mail-in ballots must be returned by 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 2.
