Media contact: Michael D. Bannon, Consumer Protection, 215-348-6060, mdbannon@buckscounty.org

In response to numerous consumer calls about mass mailings that are causing confusion, the Bucks County Department of Consumer Protection recommends that voters apply online if they wish to receive mail-in ballots.

The mass mailings in question come from The Center for Voter Information, a nonprofit group that is not affiliated with Bucks County government or the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. While the goal of this organization is valid, its mailings are causing confusion among some voters. vote by mail bucks

It is recommended that the best way to apply for a mail-in ballot is online at www.votespa.com/applymailballot. Please be advised that you will need to enter a PennDot ID or Driver’s License number to complete this application online.

If you would like to check if you have already applied for a mail-in ballot and been approved visit www.votespa.com/mailballotstatus.

The Bucks County Board of Elections urges anyone planning to vote by mail-in or absentee ballot to make their request now. This will help ensure that voters will receive their ballots as quickly as possible once the ballots are ready to be sent out.
