Overview

This resource provides a visual guide for individuals with autism and intellectual disabilities about what to expect during the voting process for the 2020 Elections.

This is an election year. We will be voting for national, state and local officials.

Election day is November 3rd.

In Pennsylvania, you can register to vote if you are a US citizen, a PA resident, and are at least 18 years old.

Voting is important because it is one way to have your voice heard.

The deadline to register to vote is October 19th.

You can register to vote online.

Because of COVID-19, you can vote by mail this year.

You can request a mail-in ballot online.

You can drop off the mail-in ballot at a United States Postal Service mailbox or a secure drop off location.

If you vote by mail, be sure to follow the instructions very carefully.

Complete the ballot, seal in the envelopes, and sign the outside of the envelope.

You can also vote in person on Election Day between 7am and 8pm at a polling place. You can find your polling place online.
