ABSENTEE VOTING NO LONGER NEEDS EXCUSE!
First time voters need to bring ID.
No laws require companies to give workers time off to vote. But employers cannot threaten or intimidate employees to influence their political opinions or actions.
Vote Early in Pennsylvania! Pennsylvanians can vote in-person before election day! If you'll be out of town on April 28 or simply find it more convenient, vote early!
Early voting in Pennsylvania begins March 9 and ends on April 28.
New law that came in to effect this year means anyone can apply for an absentee ballot.
You can also apply and vote in-person starting sometime in early – mid march!
“Under a new law, people will have the option of requesting and submitting an absentee ballot during one in-person visit to county elections offices, starting more than a month and a half before an election day. It’s not technically what most people understand as “early voting” — people won’t be using the usual voting machines — but it’s a method for people to cast ballots in person in advance of the actual election without worrying about deadlines and mail problems.”
If you are a college student not living in your home state, you can vote for Bernie in either your home state or in the state in which you are attending school!
If you are a Military Voter or a US Citizen living abroad, you are able to request a ballot here to vote for Bernie.
