(Harrisburg) -- Governor Corbett has ordered some of Pennsylvania's county election offices to extend the deadline for absentee ballots to be returned following the disruptions caused by this week's massive storm.

Absentee voters in counties where election officers were closed this week have until 5 o'clock Monday evening to submit their ballots, either by mail or in person.

The extension applies only to counties where the office of the board of elections was closed due to the storm.
Secretary of the Commonwealth Carol Aichele says today's order will allow those requiring an absentee ballot an additional chance to ensure their vote is counted.
