"Bernie can you review how to get an absentee ballot?"
This question was asked in response to my post yesterday, telling you Monday was the last day to register if you wish to vote in November. It's too late to register now, but if you are registered, you can vote by absentee ballot.
Absentee ballots are available to people who are unable to go to their designated polling place on election day. If you are in the military or a bedridden combat vet, you can vote by absentee ballot even if you failed to register.
Absentee ballot applications for the November 5 election must be received by your county election office by 5pm on Tuesday, October 29, 2019. You can apply for an absentee ballot online or by sending an application to your county office.

Earlier this year, the state legislature passed a bill that expanded absentee ballot deadlines and even provided badly needed money for the new voting machines, but Governor Tom Wolf vetoed it because it also eliminated straight-party voting.
