Make sure you have your driver's license or social security number on you when filling out your form. Students attending college will fill out section A of the form.

Step 2: Mail your completed absentee ballot request form to the Bucks County Board of Elections at 55 East Court St Doylestown, PA 18901. Or, you may deliver the absentee ballot request form to that address in person. 

Step 3: A month or so before election day, you will receive your ballot in the mail. Complete your ballot and return it to the Bucks County Board of Elections, giving yourself plenty of time before the deadline.
