Absentee ballot deadline extended in Pennsylvania as state recovers from massive storm

Due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy forcing several county courthouses to close, Gov. Tom Corbett has extended the deadline to request an absentee ballot by two days, to Thursday, Nov. 1 at 5 p.m.

The deadline to return a voted absentee ballot HAS NOT been extended. These ballots are due Friday, Nov. 2.
