Pennsylvania voters who apply to cast their ballots by mail for the November election won’t have to worry about stamps.

State officials announced Friday afternoon they’ll cover pre-paid return postage for mailed ballots.

The Pennsylvania Department of State is still working out the logistical details. But officials expect counties will be reimbursed or utilize the department’s business return mail account, and that costs won’t exceed $3 million statewide, according to spokeswoman Wanda Murren.

Voters can apply for a mail-in ballot by going to the department’s website, calling 877-868-3772 or contacting their local county elections office.
