a Voter Registration Application

The Voter Registration Application must be downloaded
and mailed to the appropriate office. The county must have an original
copy in its files. Faxed copies are not permitted by law.
Note: On December 26, 2000, the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court
ordered the removal of the felony conviction prohibition as a qualification
for voter registration. When completing the Voter Registration Mail
Application (VRMA), a convicted felon who is released from prison
may make application to register to vote by striking through the
felony conviction line at Section 9(2) on the VRMA and signing his
or her name. (New VRMA forms have eliminated the reference to felony
conviction). VRMA forms are available from county voter registration
offices as well as state offices that provide public assistance and
services to persons with disabilities.
Important New Information for All Absentee Voters - - Absentee Ballot Application
With the exception of absentee voters who have a disability or who are overseas,
all Absentee Ballots must be delivered to the County Board of Elections either
in person or through the U. S. Postal Service. Absentee Ballots delivered
by any other means for absentee voters who do not have a disability will
not be accepted or counted by the County Board of Elections. Absentee Ballots
and Alternative Ballots delivered for voters who do have a disability may
be delivered by a third party who has written authorization from the disabled
absentee or alternative ballot voter. Absentee Ballots delivered for an absentee
voter who is overseas on Election Day may be made by an overnight delivery
