DO I NEED ID TO VOTE?
You only need a valid form of identification to vote if you haven’t voted at your current location before. Call 833-728-6837 if you believe a polling official is requesting identification erroneously.
If you are voting in person on June 2, please note:
The PA Department of State has issued several recommendations for voters headed to the polls:
Bringing your own blue- or black-ink pen to mark your ballot and limit your exposure to shared surfaces.
Being patient. This will be a new experience for everyone involved. You can help by being patient and understanding while you exercise your right to vote.
Wearing a mask that covers your nose and mouth. This can be a cloth mask or scarf, like you would wear in a grocery store.
Practicing good hand hygiene. You may want to bring hand sanitizer with you, if you have it, for your personal use.
Maintaining social distance from poll workers and other voters. This means staying about 6 feet apart from other people while you are waiting in line, checking in and voting.
Following instructions from poll workers and other election officials. They are there to help things run smoothly.
