Today Is the Last Day to Register to Vote for President in Pennsylvania
The November 8th presidential election is less than a month away. If you live in Pennsylvania and want to vote in it, you need to be registered by today.
All eligible voters who submit their paperwork — turned in by hand, electronically, or mailed and postmarked today — will be able to vote on the 8th.
Pennsylvania is one of the most progressive states when it comes to ballot access. Basically, anyone who’s not currently locked up for a felony can vote in this state. If you’re reading this, you’re likely eligible.
Yes, it’s just that easy. You can register to vote online, and there’s even a FAQ to answer any questions you might have. If you don’t have a Pennsylvania driver’s license, you’ll have to upload a digital signature by signing a piece of paper and taking a photo of it.
If you don’t want to submit online, the Philadelphia County Board of Elections will take your registration form in Room 142 of City Hall through 5 p.m. Last year, I wrote a how-to guide on how to change your registration to vote in the mayoral primary. (Per a check online, I am a still a registered Democrat, so I guess I’ve forgotten to change back to independent.) Or you can mail it in. As long as it’s postmarked today, you can vote in November’s election.
