Today is the deadline to request a mail-in ballot


Today (Tuesday, May 9) is the last day to apply for a mail-in ballot to vote in the Tuesday, May 16, primary.

To do so, voters can visit their county election office by 5 p.m. to complete an application. Applications (English | Spanish) can also be downloaded from to be filled out and brought in. Do not mail in an application: It is too late.

Lancaster County’s Election Office is on the first floor of the County Government Center, 150 N. Queen St., Lancaster.

Voters must already be registered: That deadline passed last week, on Monday, May 1.
