YORK, Pa.-- Can't make it to the polls on Election Day?

In Pennsylvania, voters have the benefit of the absentee ballot, that allows them to vote even if they can't make it to a polling station.

The process is fairly simple. You can acquire an application for an absentee ballot online.

After completing the application, you must make sure that it is delivered to your county's Board of Elections by 5 p.m. on the Tuesday before Election Day.

You will then receive a ballot that you will fill out, and return to your county's Board of Elections by 5 p.m. on the Friday before Election Day.
