Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Bob Casey, Jr. (D. PA):
In 2016, 1.8 million eligible Democratic voters in Pennsylvania didn't vote. Donald Trump won the election by 44,292 votes.
This year, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues, even more Democratic voters may stay home on Election Day both in the primary and the general elections. That's why it's critical that every Democratic voter — including you! — considers signing up to vote by mail.
Voting by mail is easy, it's secure, and it's safe. It's also the best way to make sure we elect more Democrats in local, statewide, and federal elections this year, and take back the White House in November.
This may be a record year for votes cast by mail.
Thousands of your neighbors have already requested their own mail-in ballots. They know that it's the easiest way to vote, and even if they can't make it to their polling place, their vote will still be counted.
You don't have to choose between social distancing and exercising your right to vote this year. All you have to do is request your mail-in ballot today, wait for it to arrive closer to Election Day, fill it in, and send it back. It's that simple.
