Letter from PA SOS about Voting by Mail in 2023
Dear Pennsylvania Voter,
Would you like to receive a mail ballot for each election this year?
In a few weeks, you will receive an annual application from your county that you will need to complete and return to continue automatically receiving either a mail-in or absentee ballot for each election in 2023.
If you are on the annual mail-in voter list:
- You must complete and return the application to affirm you want your county to send you a mail-in ballot for all 2023 elections in which you are eligible to vote.
- You will receive this application every year unless you return it and specify that you no longer want to receive it. If you would like to be removed from the annual list, follow the instructions provided by your county on how to cancel your annual status.
If you are on the permanent absentee voter list (for voters who are permanently ill or disabled):
- If you wish to receive absentee ballots for elections this year, you must complete and return the application.
- You will receive this application every year unless you return it and specify that you no longer want to receive it.
If you are eligible to vote in a special election held before Feb. 20, 2023, in your district, and you completed the annual application to receive mail ballots for all elections in 2022, then you will automatically receive a mail-in or absentee ballot for that special election.
