Hi Pennsylvania, if you want to vote in  the 2022 midterm elections there are three   steps you need to take.

Register, make  your plan, and of course, vote.   Let's start with getting registered. If you  have a Pennsylvania ID or driver's license,   you can register online.

If not, you’ll need to  print out an application form and mail it in.   Links to both are at   But either way you register, you  need to do it by October 28th.   Then it’s time to make your plan  for how you’re going to vote.   If you’re going to be out of town on election  day or just want to vote early from the   comfort of your own couch, you can request  that your ballot be mailed to you.   You have until November 1st to request an  absentee ballot, but the sooner you ask for one,   the sooner you can get it, fill it out, and mail  it back so that it gets to your County Board of   Elections office no later than November 8th. You can also fill out an absentee ballot in person   at a county board of elections office or  satellite site. Dates and times vary by county,   so you can find all those locations  and their hours at this link.   Or you can vote on election day on November 8th.  You can look up where you’ll vote at that same   link, and polls are open from 7am to 8pm.

If it’s your first time voting in Pennsylvania,   You’ll also need to bring a Photo ID with your  current address with you. A Pennsylvania drivers   license or non-driver ID, military or student  ID all work. But if you don’t have one of those,   you can bring a proof of address, like a  utility bill, paycheck, or bank statement   with your name and address on it.

Once you have your plan for how you’re going   to vote, where you need to go, what time you’re  going to vote, and what ID you’re going to bring,   you just need to follow the plan, and  go vote on or before November 8th.   If you want to know everything that you can vote  for ahead of time, you can find a sample ballot at so you have time  to research candidates and make your decisions.   You don’t have to vote for everything for  your ballot to count, but this is your best   chance to choose who gets to make decisions  about your life: all the way from congress   to your city council or school board. We’ve put all the links for everything you need   to register, vote early, find your polling  place, and locate your sample ballot at Thank you for voting!
