Mail-in ballot application inside
Residents can vote in the privacy and safety of their home
LOCK HAVEN –As the June 2 primary election nears, there have been a lot of questions from Clinton County voters as to how it’s all going to turn out.
The election will take place in the midst of a life-threatening pandemic that has forced residents to wear masks, stay inside their homes, and remain six-feet away from other people when they venture outside.
Some voters say they may not vote this time around because they feel uncomfortable following those guidelines when they go to the polls.
Ironically, a new way of voting has been offered … at just the right time.
For the first time ever, voters can vote by mail. They don’t have to leave their homes. All they have to do is apply for a mail-in ballot, vote for their favorite candidates and mail the ballot back to county elections.
Most importantly it’s available to every single voter, no questions asked.
It’s easy, but some people are having a difficult time getting an applications, which are available online. But many county residents don’t have access to a computer or aren’t comfortable applying on line.
If you are one of those people, The Express wants to help.
As a community service, we are offering our readers an application for a mail-in ballot in today’s newspaper.
We think every resident should have access to the new mail-in ballot, so they can vote for their favorite candidates in the safety and privacy of their own homes.
The mail-in ballot is printed on Page A-7. All you have to do is cut it out, complete all the information and mail it to Clinton County Board of Elections, 2 Piper Way, Suite 309, Lock Haven, Pa. 17745.
The deadline to return your completed mail-in ballot is 8 p.m. on election day. Please note, your ballot must be received in the county board of election’s office by that time. Postmarks do not county.
So, don’t delay. Cut out your mail-in ballot today, complete the information and mail it out right away. You won’t have to think about standing in a long line, six feet from the people in front and back of you, and wearing a mask.
And, if you would like to receive your mail-in ballot in November, check the box and you won’t have to reapply in the fall.
