New Voting Law

In 2020, Pennsylvania implemented Act 77, a new law that changes the way we can vote in PA. Here are the highlights:

Mail-In Voting

The law creates a new option to vote by mail without needing an excuse, which was previously required for voters using absentee ballots. Pennsylvania joins dozens of other states and Washington, D.C. with mail-in voting.

More Time to Register

The deadline to register to vote has been extended to 15 days before the election. The previous deadline was 30 days. More time to register means more people can participate in elections. 

50 Day Mail-In Voting Period

All voters can request and submit their mail-in or absentee ballot up to 50 days before the election, which is the longest vote-by-mail period in the country.

No More Straight Ticket Voting

Voters will no longer be able to select one box to vote for all members of a party. Studies have suggested this will disproportionately affect Democratic voters so make sure you vote for all the races on the ballot.

New Voting Machines in Bucks County

Starting in 2020, if you choose to vote at the polls, Bucks County will be using new voting machines called ClearCast Scanner. These machines use a touch screen and a scanner to scan a ballot which you’ve filled out. Unlike the old system, the ClearCast scanner stores a paper backup in the event that an audit is required.
