Allegheny County is offering all voters a mail-in/absentee ballot option for the June 2 primary election.
You can apply online anytime, or you can return a paper application with a postage-paid, addressed envelope that the county elections division is mailing to registered voters.
Applications to vote by mail must be received by 5 p.m. Tues. May 26.
Mail-in ballots must be turned in by 8 p.m. Tues. June 2.
The mail-in voting option allows social distancing, providing protection during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Last month it became clear that we would not be able to conduct a typical election,” County Executive Rich Fitzgerald said in a press statement.
“We hope that voters will continue to seek mail-in ballots as it is the safest option for them, and for all of our residents, during this pandemic."
