AARP Pennsylvania hosted a tele-town hall with Pennsylvania Acting Secretary of State Leigh M. Chapman and Deputy Secretary for Elections and Commissions Marks on May 10, the last day to request a mail-in ballot.
Both the Acting Secretary and Deputy Secretary encouraged folks on the call to apply for their mail-in ballot after the event was over, then answered voters' questions for the remainder of the event.
There were many questions from audience members at this event pertaining to mail-in voting, voter fraud, and other issues.
The main issues discussed were how to reach out to have your vote if you have not yet, or do not, receive a mail-in ballot. All the information shared on the call can be found on vote.pa.gov.
Host Joanne Grossi held a poll during the call, asking how voters planned to vote this primary season. The results were:
- 57%: vote in person
- 39%: mail-in
- 4%: absentee
