Hi anyone in Pennsylvania. I found out today that we are now allowed to vote by mail-in ballot or absentee ballot, no reason required. The old way you could only qualify for an absentee ballot was if you had an illness or were physically out of the state, and even then they could say no if they didn’t like your reason. Well, now we can request a mail-in ballot with no reason given.
“Under Act 77 of 2019, Pennsylvania voters have several ways to vote if they choose not to go to the polls or are unable to get to the polls on election day: mail-in ballot or absentee ballot, both of which they can vote via the mail or in person at their county election office.” - Source
The primary on April 28, 2020 is the first time this will be applicable. If you have local elections prior to April 28, 2020 the mail-in ballot option is not yet available.
Anyway, PA finally catching up with the times.
