Mifflin Co. has sent out mail ballots

Absentee drop box is available in courthouse

LEWISTOWN — The Mifflin County Elections Office has begun sending out mail-in and absentee ballots for the upcoming general municipal election.

“The election will be on November 2, and all of the same polling locations from the May primary election will be used for the general election as well,” James Conway, Mifflin County director of voter registration and elections, said in a press release.

Conway noted that a drop box has been placed just inside the main entrance to the courthouse for those mail-in voters wishing to deliver their ballot instead of placing it in the mail. The entrance is open from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. each day, Monday through Friday. Voters may also hand deliver their mail-in ballot directly to the Voter Registration and Election Office on the first floor of the courthouse during the same hours.

In order for mail-in ballots to count, they must be received by the county elections office no later than 8 p.m. Nov. 2.

On election day, polls will be open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. The last day to register to vote and be eligible to vote in the Nov. 2 general election is Oct. 18 and the last day to request a mail-in or absentee ballot is Oct. 26.

Voters with questions are asked to contact the Voter Registration and Election Office via phone at (717) 248-6571 or email to voterregistration@mifflinco.org.
