We have received several reports, including from the news media, that misinformation about voting is circulating in Pennsylvania.
Citizens are being told that the best way to ensure their vote is counted is to “write in” every choice.
This is absolutely incorrect! If a candidate’s name is on the ballot, you can not write it in.
“Write-ins” are strictly for names not appearing on ballot.
Even though PA lacks Voter Verified Paper Ballots, a write-in is not a solution but rather a loss of your vote
