First Time Voting?


If you are voting in Pennsylvania for the first time or if you are voting at a new polling place, here’s how to get ready to go to the polling place on Election Day.

What do I need to prepare?

The first time you vote, you must bring a photo or non-photo ID. Go online to to look up your polling place location.

Learn about the voting system in your county and see a demo of how it works.

Review the candidates and measures that are on the ballot and plan who you will vote for in advance. You can find a sample ballot on your county election office website.

What do I need to know about the polling place?

In Pennsylvania, polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. The busiest times of day to vote are in the morning and evening. If you can, try going at less busy times.

If you have a question, ask a poll worker. If you are in line before or at the time the polls close, you will be allowed to cast your vote.

What do I do if there is a problem?

If you need help voting, cannot use the voting system, or cannot go to a polling place because of a disability, learn about accessible voting options.

If your name is not in the voter roster and you believe you registered to vote in your precinct, you may have the right to vote on a provisional ballot.

Your vote will count if election officials determine that you are eligible to vote.

If you are away from home on Election Day, you may be able to vote by absentee ballot.
