Vote Absentee

If you cannot go to your polling place in person on election day, you can still vote.

For a variety of reasons, such as school/college, work, travel, religious holidays, illness, disability, transportation or scheduling conflict, you can apply for an absentee ballot.

Note the deadlines carefully and try to apply with a couple of weeks to spare. If you apply and then find you can vote in person, just go to your polling place to vote, no problem.


In November 2018 almost 500 Democratic absentee ballots were not counted in Chester County because they arrived after the deadline. Do not let this happen to your vote! Mail your ballot at least one week previous to the deadline or pay for expedited delivery. Your vote is important!



"There was a right side and a wrong side in the late war, which no sentiment ought to cause us to forget, and while to-day we should have malice toward none, and charity toward all, it is no part of our duty to confound right with wrong, or loyalty with treason." —Frederick Douglass, 1878
