YOUR VOTE IS YOUR VOICE

  Primary Election Day is April 23, 2024

Voting in Pennsylvania is a fundamental right covered by the Constitution. It is a tried and true strategy for fighting for what we believe in.

To register to vote you must meet the following criteria:

  1.  Must be a U.S. citizen for at least 1 month prior to the next election.

  2.  Resident of PA and be a resident in the district in which you want to vote in.

  3.  18 years of age by election day.

                                

DO YOU HAVE A VOTING PLAN CHECKLIST?

 

  1.  Register to Vote  Last day to register to vote for the primary is April 8th.

  2.  Check your Voter Registration Status 

  3.  Have you moved or changed your name?  Update your Registration 

  4.  Mail-in Ballot Check: You must apply for a mail-in ballot every year.  You can fill out a mail-in ballot application by clicking here .  An absentee ballot is a ballot sent for either the primary or the election. In other words, if you apply in the spring of 2024 for a absentee you will be sent a ballot for just the primary. If you want a ballot sent to you for both the primary and the general election, you need to fill out a mail-in ballot application. BE CAREFUL. If you answer "yes" to the three questions asked on the on-line ballot application, you will be sent an absentee!  

  5. You can also call the Greensburg's County Board of Elections 724-830-3150 and request an application be sent to you. 

Last day to request a mail-in is April 16th. Your application must be received by the Election Board by this date. Please note the earlier you request a mail-in ballot the better.

Mail your application to: 

WESTMORELAND ELECTION BUREAU 

2 N MAIN STREET

Suite 109

GREENSBURG, PA 15601

(Note: Postmarks do not count.)

Steps to mail-in:

  1. Apply for a mail-in ballot. Your ballot application must be received by the Election Board no later than April 16th to receive a ballot for the primary.

  2. Complete ballot when received by selecting candidates per ballot instructions.

  3. Place ballot in "secrecy" envelope. Make sure you seal the ballot envelope. Do not write on the secrecy envelope.
