The deadline to apply for absentee ballot applications is quickly approaching. Individuals who expect to be absent from their municipality on Election Day, April 24, are eligible to apply for an absentee voting ballot. The last day to apply for an absentee voting application is Tuesday, April 17.

If, for some reason, a person misses the deadline to apply to vote by mail, it is possible to go to Montco Voter Services and vote in person until 4 PM 4/20. Obviously, the person has to be registered and has to come with an ID. Call 610-278-3275 for specific details. Voter Services is located in the Courthouse Annex on the side street across from the Courthouse in Norristown and is on the 6th floor. Hours are M-F 8:15 to 4:15. Also, if a person who gets a ballot via USPS cannot mail his/her ballot back to be received by the 4/20 deadline, he or she can IN PERSON bring it back to the same office. IN PERSON means no one can do this for you.
