The Pennsylvania Department of Aging today encouraged older adults to be
informed about their options for voting in the Nov. 3 General Election if they
are concerned about being able to vote safely amid COVID-19.
“The Department of Aging urges older Pennsylvanians to keep their health and well-being in mind however they choose to cast their ballot in November,” Secretary of Aging Robert Torres said. “The older adult population consistently votes more often than any other age group, and the turnout for the upcoming election may likely be no different. Therefore, it is important that they are able to vote without putting themselves at risk.”
Torres noted that if older adults are opting to vote by mail-in ballot, they should apply for one as soon as possible at votesPA.com.
