At this point Chester County and many other counties throughout Pennsylvania have already mailed their mail-in ballots for those voters who have requested them. You might have requested a mail-in ballot through the internet or maybe during the last voting cycle in the Pennsylvania Primary Election when you checked off the box stating you wanted to continue to receive mail-in ballots. There is a good chance you have already received it. However, at any time if you want to check the status of your ballot for the upcoming election you can go to www.pavoterservices.pa.gov/pages/BallotTracking.aspx. One more point, if you have not yet requested a mail-in ballot but want to do so, you should act quickly. You want to leave enough time to have received the ballot from Voter Services and gotten it back there properly signed no later than November 3. This is no time for delay.
The traditional way of voting at the polls on election day is still available but be prepared to wait in line for some time.
So, assuming you have your mail-in ballot, what now? Here are Step by Step Instructions you can follow to assist.
