Planning to Vote by Mail? Take Action Now!

QVNA helps promote civic engagement and voting in elections. To prepare for the November 3rd General Election, we have a few fact to share:

There’s no physical difference between the mail-in ballot (in Pennsylvania). The difference is WHY the ballot is used:
  • Mail-in ballots do not require a reason to use it. 
  • Absentee ballots are traditionally allotted to people who won’t be home during an election.
For all voter registration needs, to go www.VotesPa.com (or call 1-877-877-3772)
  • October 19th is the deadline for voter registration
To apply for mail-in ballot, to go www.VotesPa.com (or call 1-877-877-3772)
  • October 27th at 5:00 p.m. is the deadline for mail-in or absentee ballot applications. 
    • You must have a valid PA driver’s license or a photo I.D. 
    • Apply early to receive your ballot before the election.
