PERMANENT ABSENTEE BALLOT
If you know of anyone who permanently has a hard time getting out to the polls, they may apply for a permanent absentee ballot. There is a box to check on the Absentee Ballot Application to request a permanent absentee ballot.
According to PA Voter Services, permanent absentee voters are not required to file a physician’s certificate of disability with each application for absentee ballot, but they must submit a written statement asserting continuing disability every four years in order to maintain his or her eligibility to vote under the permanent absentee.

If you’re a U.S. citizen and not yet registered to vote, but will be 18 by Election Day (June 2), you must register to vote by May 16 to participate in the election! Check your voter registration status, register to vote, or change your address online at www.votespa.com.
