REGISTERING TO VOTE

If you want to register to vote yourself, the process is simple and fast.

 

PENNSYLVANIA-SPECIFIC INFORMATION

REQUIREMENTS

In order to register to vote in PA, you must: be 18 on or before the next election, be a resident of PA for at least 30 days before the next election, and a citizen of the United States.

INFORMATION NEEDED

The PA form will ask you for EITHER your driver's license number or the last four digits of your social security number. If you do not have either, there is a box you can check on the form and the Montgomery County Election Office will reach out with more information.

REGISTERING WITH A PARTY

When you register, you will be asked to affiliate yourself with a party: Republican, Democrat, Independent, or another third-party. Some states (list here) have closed/partially closed primaries, which places restrictions on who you can vote for. 

If you want to change your party, the process is easy.

VOTING IN COLLEGE

Don't worry, you can still vote in college! If you are registered in Pennsylvania but will attend college elsewhere, you will vote at a local polling place, but still for Pennsylvania elections (as long as you don't change your official place of residence).

I'M CONFUSED.

That's okay. Feel free to call your local election office (information here) with any specific questions you may have, or contact us directly.
