Political experts say it would take an act of Congress to delay the 2020 presidential election.
In a recent tweet, President Trump asked if voting should be postponed until Americans can go to the polls and properly, securely and safely vote. The president also suggested universal mail-in ballots would lead to an inaccurate and fraudulent election.
"Let me be clear, the election will be held on November 3, 2020," said Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar.
Boockvar says in Pennsylvania, mail-in voting is not universal. She says while everyone has the right to mail in their ballot, voters must ask for a ballot and then be verified before they get it and after they cast it.
She says there is no difference between the ballot mail-in and absentee voters use. Pennsylvania has been using absentee voting for years; mail-in voting is new this year.
"Every Pennsylvanian should know that even while we are upgrading our voting systems, dealing with a pandemic and making a lot of changes, we have not stopped making sure that every step of the election process is secure," said Boockvar.
Boockvar says the state is working with county voting offices to make sure issues arising from a record number of mail-in ballots in the June primary are not repeated in November.
Northampton County Chief Registrar Amy Cozze says it's important that voters follow mail-in ballot instructions carefully.
"Make sure you apply and return your ballot early or on time. We are asking voters to please not wait until the last minute," said Cozze.
Election officials say voters with questions or concerns about mail-in ballots or where they can vote in person can contact their local election office or visit votespa.com
