Fayette County to begin mailing ballots in early October

Waiting for your mail-in ballot to come? Local county election offices expect to begin sending them out early this month.

Larry Blosser, director of Fayette County’s election bureau, said nearly 10,000 voters have requested mail-in ballots already.

“And they’re still climbing,” he said.

He noted the office has been receiving high numbers of calls from people who reapplied for mail-in ballots after the primary, but had already checked the box indicating they would like to vote by mail in future elections.

There is no need to re-register, he said, and their application may be denied because of that. He asked anyone who receives a duplicate ballot to disregard it.

Blosser said anyone who’s applied to vote by mail but does not receive a ballot by Oct. 9 should contact the election bureau at 724-430-1289.

Greene County has a similar timetable, said commission Chairman Mike Belding, who is also chairman of the election board. He said the elections office in Waynesburg scanned test ballots last week, and expected to send ballots out the first week of the month.

Blosser said Fayette officials expect to run test ballots this week to ensure there will be no issues processing filled out ballots once they are received.

Washington County, meanwhile, started sending ballots to the more than 25,000 who requested them on Friday. Elections Director Melanie Ostrander said she expects the number of requests to double by the Oct. 27 deadline to request a mail-in ballot.

Counties were permitted to begin printing ballots last month, after the Department of State certified them.

Mail-in ballots must be returned either via mail or in person to the county election office from which they were requested. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court extended the deadline for mail-in ballots postmarked by 8 p.m. on Election Day to arrive in elections offices. Republicans are appealing the new deadline of Friday, Nov. 6, to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The deadline to make the request online at votespa.com or at the election office is Oct. 27. Voters who prefer to cast a ballot in person have two options to do so. Traditional polling places will be open from between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 3. Voters can also go to their county elections office, request a paper ballot and fill it out on the spot. State officials have recommended calling individual election bureaus to schedule a time to do so.

Fayette County poll workers need masks, supplies for June 2

By Cindy Ekas, Connellsville Daily Courier (Monday, May 18, 2020)

The Fayette County Election Bureau is working hard to ensure voter and poll worker safety as Pennsylvania’s Presidential Primary Election is fast approaching.

Gov. Tom Wolf has encouraged all citizens to vote via mail-in ballot during the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

However, voters still have option to visit the polls on June 2.

In addition to processing thousands of mailin ballots, Election Bureau Director Larry Blosser and his staff are preparing to adhere to strict social distancing and cleaning guidelines on Election Day.

Blosser said he is also seeking community support to help protect Fayette County.

“I’ve seen where people are making masks and donating them to healthcare workers and nursing homes,” Blosser said. “I just wondered whether people might be willing to donate masks and supplies for our poll workers.”

The Pennsylvania Department of State Bureau of Elections and Notaries is providing every county with enough COVID-19 safety kits to cover 65 percent of their voting precincts.

The kits include a limited number of protective masks, disinfectant wipes, gloves and hand sanitizer.

Fayette County has 77 polling places, and each set will have up to 15 workers.

“This works out to about 50 kits, and the county needs to provide the remainder,” Blosser said.

“We will need, at a minimum, an additional 37 kits, as some of our larger precincts will need more supplies than are included in the kits,” he added.

Poll workers will be required to regularly sanitize all pens, touchscreens, scanners, buttons, tables, privacy screens, door handles and other items or surfaces voters and workers touch.

With poll workers at the precincts from 6 a.m. to at least 9 p.m., they will need to change their masks and gloves multiple times throughout the day to adhere to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.

“Donations would be a tremendous help and allow them to replace their masks more frequently,” Blosser said. “Sanitizing wipes would be greatly appreciated, as well.”

Anyone wishing to donate supplies should email lblosser@fayettepa.org or bguthrie@fayettepa.org, to arrange a drop-off time. Supplies can also be mailed to the Fayette County Election Bureau at 22 East Main Street, Uniontown, PA 15401.

Additionally, residents are urged to join one of the Pennsylvania Department of State’s weekly webinars to prepare for in-person voting at the polls.

The webinars take place at 5:30 and 7 p.m. every Tuesday until May 26, and cover topics such as voter registration, voting by mail-in ballots and elections during COVID-19. Visit www.dos.pa.gov for more information.

“Poll worker wellbeing is extremely important to me, because they are an integral part of the voting process,” Blosser said.

“Election Day is a very long day for the poll workers, so giving them peace of mind that they won’t become ill is the least we can do,” he continued.

“It is equally important to maintain a safe polling place so that voters may exercise their right to vote and not be fearful of participating in the voting process,” he added.

Gov. Wolf Signs COVID-19 Response Bills to Bolster Health Care System, Workers, and Education and Reschedule the Primary Election

Governor Tom Wolf signed four bills today to fight the COVID-19 pandemic in Pennsylvania that bolster the health care system, benefit workers and schools, and reschedule the 2020 primary election for June 2.

The governor signed House Bill 1232, which provides $50 million for the Wolf administration to purchase medical equipment and supplies for hospitals, nursing facilities and emergency medical services to meet the urgent needs by patients and staff.

“This funding will allow Pennsylvania to get more beds, ventilators, and other personal protective equipment that our health care system needs for a surge in patients,” said Governor Wolf. “The state and our health care system are mobilizing as fast as possible to provide medical workers with the equipment they need to care for patients.”

The governor also signed, Senate Bill 751, which waives the requirement for schools to be in session at least 180 days, provides for continuity of education plans, ensures school employees are paid during the closure, and provides the Secretary of Education with authority to waive student teacher and standardized assessments. The Department of Education previously announced the cancellation of all PSSA testing, Keystone exams and the Pennsylvania Alternate System of Assessment for the 2019-20 school year.

The governor signed Senate Bill 422, which reschedules the 2020 primary election from April 28 to June 2. and makes other election process changes, including some due to the COVID-19 emergency. The bill provides process improvements to Act 77 of 2019, to allow counties to begin processing and tabulating mail ballots beginning at 7 a.m. on election day, rather than after the polls close at 8 p.m. Additionally, the measure allows counties to temporarily consolidate polling places without court approval and eases other rules regarding location and staffing of polling places for the primary to respond to county concerns about a potential shortage of poll workers and appropriate polling place locations.

“Delaying this year’s primary election as several other states have done is in the best interests of voters, poll workers and county election officials,” said Governor Wolf. “I commend the General Assembly for acting quickly on this critical legislation. The Department of State will continue to work with local election officials to ensure Pennsylvania has a fair and accessible election.”

The governor reminded voters of the new option to vote by mail-in ballot rather than going to a polling place on election day. Already more than 215,000 registered voters have signed up for either a mail-in or absentee ballot, with nearly 78 percent using the commonwealth’s new online application. Those voters do not need to file new applications despite the change in primary date.

The governor also signed House Bill 68, which makes applying for unemployment compensation easier for workers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The bill requires the Department of Labor & Industry to waive the one week waiting period and job search and work registration requirements for claimants under the disaster emergency, provides automatic relief from benefit charges for employers whose account would otherwise be charged during the disaster emergency, increases timeframes and allows for interest-free payment plans, and provides the secretary with the ability to adopt temporary regulations to ensure compliance with federal law.

The governor signed House Bill 1578 which makes technical changes to the disclosure of fees in declarations and in public offering statements of planned communities, cooperatives, and condominiums and to permit corrective amendments to the bylaws of planned communities, cooperatives, and condominiums by utilizing the current procedure used to make corrective amendments to declarations.

The governor vetoed House Bill 1100.

Mail In Ballots Being Accepted

In case you missed it, the Pennsylvania Department of State announced on February 11 that is had launched a new website where voters for the first time can request the newly legalized mail-in ballots for the April 28 primary election.

That’s right: mail-in ballots. Starting this year, Pennsylvania voters now have several ways to vote if they choose not to go to the polls or are unable to get to the polls on election day: mail-in ballot or absentee ballot, both of which they can use to vote via mail or in person at their county election office.

Mail-in ballots are new this year thanks to sweeping reforms included in Act 77 of 2019. With that law, which takes effect for the first time in the 2020 primary election, Pennsylvania has done more to increase voter access and security in just the last few months than it had in eight decades prior – and mail-in ballots are among the most significant changes.

The online application for mail-in ballots is available by clicking here.

How does it work? In short, counties must begin processing mail-in and absentee ballot applications 50 days before the election. For the April primary, that will be March 9. As soon as the ballot is finalized, the counties will mail ballots to voters or provide them in-person at the county election office. Both mail-in and absentee voters will receive a ballot in the mail to complete and return to their county election office by 8 p.m. on Election Day.

Again, mail-in ballots are new this year thanks to Act 77, and will provide a brand new option for Pennsylvanians who do not qualify for absentee ballots, which are still available by clicking here.

Local races include one with incumbent facing no opposition, another with primary challenge

Pennsylvania’s 2020 primary election is less than 10 weeks away, and according to information on the Department of State’s database, all U.S. Congress and state legislative races in Fayette and Greene counties and the mid-Mon Valley portions of Washington and Westmoreland counties have both Democratic and Republican candidates.

Except one.

In the 51st Legislative District, comprised of parts of Fayette and Somerset counties, state Rep. Matt Dowling, R-Uniontown, faces no opposition in his quest for a third term, having defeated former state Rep. Tim Mahoney, D-South Union Township, in 2016 and 2018.

State Rep. Ryan Warner, R-Perryopolis, will seek a fourth term in the 52nd Legislative District, which consists of parts of Fayette and Westmoreland counties. Harry Young Cochran of Connellsville, a Democrat, filed paperwork to challenge him in the fall.

In the 49th Legislative District, incumbent state Rep. Bud Cook, R-West Pike Run Township, is seeking a third term but will face a primary challenge from fellow Republican Tony Bottino Jr. of Carroll Township. Democrat Randy Barli of Coal Center also filed.

State Rep. Pam Snyder, a Democrat from Morgan Township, is seeking a fifth term in the 50th Legislative District and appears poised to face Republican Larry W. Yost II of Dunkard Township in the fall. That district encompasses small parts of Fayette and Washington counties in addition to all of Greene County.

In the 14th Congressional District, U.S. Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-Peters Township, will have an autumn opponent in Democrat William A. Marx of Delmont. The district includes all of Fayette, Greene and Washington counties, plus much of Westmoreland County.

The primary is April 28.

 

Candidates for Congress and the Pennsylvania Legislature run for two-year terms.

Also on the ballot along with president and statewide row office are many candidates vying to be chosen as delegates or alternates to Democratic and Republican Party presidential nominating conventions.
