Bucks County Voter Registration

(Note: On December 26, 2000, the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court ordered the removal of the felony conviction prohibition as a qualification for voter registration. When completing the Voter Registration Mail Application (VRMA), a convicted felon who is released from prison may make application to register to vote by striking through the felony conviction line at Section 9(2) on the VRMA and signing his or her name. (New VRMA forms have eliminated the reference to felony conviction). VRMA forms are available from county voter registration offices as well as state offices that provide public assistance and services to persons with disabilities.)
Important New Information for All Absentee Voters
With the exception of absentee voters who have a disability or who are overseas, all Absentee Ballots must be delivered to the County Board of Elections either in person or through the U. S. Postal Service. Absentee Ballots delivered by any other means for absentee voters who do not have a disability will not be accepted or counted by the County Board of Elections. Absentee Ballots and Alternative Ballots delivered for voters who do have a disability may be delivered by a third party who has written authorization from the disabled absentee or alternative ballot voter. Absentee Ballots delivered for an absentee voter who is overseas on Election Day may be made by an overnight delivery service.
