October 6 is Deadline to Register to Vote in Pennsylvania

Harrisburg – Secretary of the Commonwealth Carol Aichele today reminded Pennsylvanians that Monday, Oct. 6, is the last day to register to vote for the Nov. 4 general election.  In the general election, voters will elect candidates for governor, lieutenant governor, U.S. House of Representatives, and state House and Senate.

“There are many resources available to help citizens register and vote in these important contests,” Aichele said. “Voters can visit www.VotesPA.com to check their registration status, download a voter registration form and find information on their polling place.”

Applications from Pennsylvanians registering for the first time, changing their address or changing their party affiliation must be postmarked or delivered to the applicant’s county board of elections by the close of business on Monday, Oct. 6.

Individuals applying to register to vote for the election must be:

  • A citizen of the United States for at least one month before the primary;
  • A resident of Pennsylvania and the election district in which the individual desires to register and vote for at least 30 days before the election; and
  • At least 18 years of age on or before Election Day.

Residents may apply in person at a county voter registration office; the state departments of Public Welfare or Health; PennDOT photo and driver license centers; Armed Forces recruitment centers; county clerk of orphan’s courts or marriage license centers; area agencies on aging; county mental health and intellectual disabilities offices; student disability services offices of the State System of Higher Education; offices of special education in high schools; and Americans with Disabilities Act-mandated complimentary paratransit providers.

For more information on voter registration, call the Department of State’s toll-free hotline at 1-877-VOTESPA (1-877-868-3772) or visit www.VotesPA.com.
