The deadline for requesting an absentee ballot is 5:00 on Tuesday Oct. 30th. Absentee ballots received by the close of polls on election day will be counted for the offices of president and vice-president. A downloadable application for an absentee ballot is available at www.votespa.com, or call 412-350-4520. You can confirm your voter registration on this website as well.
You can still vote:
• if you have a felony conviction on your record.
• if you are on probation or parole after a felony conviction.
• if you are under house arrest or waiting for trial.
• if you are in jail for a misdemeanor or lesser offense, you can still vote by absentee ballot.
So join your friends and neighbors November 6 and get out the vote!
