Here’s the difference between absentee voting and mail-in voting, which is important to know for your purposes:

Absentee voting: This applies to you specifically if you plan to be out of the municipality where you are registered to vote on election day — or if you have a disability or illness that prevents you from getting to the polls. You’ll need to list a reason for requesting an absentee ballot.


Mail-in ballot: If you’re not an absentee voter, you can vote by mail. You don’t need a reason to request this ballot. You can get one simply because you want to mail in your vote to ensure you don’t need to go to the polls on voting day.

If you have a valid PA driver’s license or photo ID you can apply for your mail-in ballot online at www.votespa.com/ApplyMailBallot. You’ll be asked three questions: are you military or overseas, will you be absent from your home on Election day, and do you have an illness/disability. This is to determine whether a mail-in or absentee ballot is right for you. If you answer “yes” to any questions, you should apply for an absentee ballot. If you answer “no” to all, you will be able to apply for a mail-in ballot.
