HARRISBURG – PA’s Acting Secretary of State Leigh Chapman encouraged Pennsylvanians voting by mail ballot to hand-deliver their ballots to their county election office, a drop box or other designated location as soon as possible. Before casting a mail ballot, voters should read the instructions carefully; fill out the ballot, being sure to follow instructions on how to mark selections; seal the ballot in the inner secrecy envelope marked “Official Election Ballot”; and do not make any stray marks on the envelope. Seal the secrecy envelope in the pre-addressed outer return envelope. Sign and date the declaration on the outer return envelope. Voters who applied for and received a mail ballot and then decide they want to vote at the polls must bring their mail ballot packet with them to be voided, including the pre-addressed outer return envelope with the voter’s declaration.
