Election Reform Act 77

Act 77

On October 31, 2019, Governor Wolf signed Act 77 of 2019 into law. Act 77 allows more convenient and secure voting. Most voters can now vote by mail-in ballot, and voters will have more time to register to vote and to return their absentee or mail-in ballots. On March 27, Governor Wolf signed Senate Bill 422, which reschedules Pennsylvania’s primary election from April 28 to June 2 due to the COVID-19 emergency. Voters have the option to vote by mail-in ballot rather than going to their polling place on election day. Mail-in ballot applications will be accepted through Tuesday, May 26, 2020. If a voter has already applied for an absentee or mail-in ballot, they do NOT need to reapply.

Here are some tips on how to apply:

You can go to and scroll down to and click on: Election Reform Act 77. Then scroll down to and click on: apply for absentee or mail in ballot. You can fill out an application to apply for a ballot or download an application to mail in.

Another option is to go to In the list on the left, scroll down to and click on: Mail in Ballot Application. I have attached an application which can be downloaded and printed. Both websites provided more information about the new process and the change in the date of the election.
