Applications for mail-in or civilian absentee ballots are available in the Election’s Office or at this link:


The last day to apply for a mail-in or civilian absentee ballot is Tuesday, April 16th.

To ensure that your mail-in ballot is accepted, your ballot must be enclosed in the YELLOW secrecy envelope and sealed; there are NO identifying marks or symbols on the secrecy envelope, a return envelope is signed and dated on the back in the appropriate yellow boxes, and the ballot is returned to the Election’s Office NO LATER THAN 8:00pm on Election night, Tuesday, April 23rd. USPS postmarks do NOT count if received after this deadline.

The Northampton County Elections Office reminds registered voters that the County’s seven Secure Ballot Drop-off Boxes are for Northampton County voters only, and you may only drop off your own ballot. PA State Law prohibits the third-party return of ballots unless the person returning the ballot is assisting a disabled voter or emergency absentee voter and has a signed “Certification of Designated Agent” form on file at the Elections Office. A copy of this form can be downloaded here:

Counterfeiting, forging, tampering with, or destroying ballots is a second-degree misdemeanor pursuant to sections 1816 and 1817 of the PA Election Code. (25 P.S. §§ 3516 and 3517)
