Senator Argall Reminds Constituents of Vote-By-Mail Option for Upcoming Primary Election

HARRISBURG – As Pennsylvania lawmakers work to contain the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, Senator David G. Argall is reminding community residents that they have the option to vote by mail in the upcoming primary election scheduled on April 28.

As part of a broad election modernization package that was approved by the General Assembly and signed into law in 2019, voters now have the option to request a ballot by mail. Previous law required a voter to request an absentee ballot only if he or she would be physically unable to go to the polls on Election Day.

Voters must complete an application for a mail-in ballot no later than 5 p.m. seven days prior to the election, and completed ballots must be returned no later than 8 p.m. on the day of the election.
