In the video, McCutchen explains the process of requesting a mail-in ballot, filling out the ballot, placing the ballot in the secrecy envelope, which he describes as his favorite part, and returning the ballot.
Featured in the video and helping to explain voting by mail are Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, Pittsburgh native and Women’s World Cup champion Meghan Klingenberg, and actor Michael Keaton.
