How to Vote in Pennsylvania in 2018

Hello Pennsylvania.
If you want to vote, first you have to make
sure you’re registered. If you’re not sure whether you are registered
already there’s a link in the description
where you can check right now. If you’re not registered or you need to
update your name or address, you can go to the link in the description and register online
as long as you have a Pennsylvania driver’s license or state ID, or the last 4 digits
of your social security number. If you don’t have any of those things, or
you’d just rather fill out a paper form and mail it in, then you should use the printable
form in the description. Either way you choose to register, you have
until October 9th to do it. And once you’re registered, you get to vote. In most cases, you’re going to be voting
in person on November 6th, but you can vote absentee by mail if you’ll be out of state
on election day or if you have an illness, disability, or religious belief that doesn’t
allow you to get to the polls.If any of those apply to you, you can request a ballot by
printing out the form in the link below and mailing it to your county elections office
— a link to find their addresses is in the description. You can request your ballot any time between
now and October 30th, but the sooner you get your request in, the longer you will have
to look it over, research candidates, and vote before you mail it back before November
6th. For everyone else, there’s a link to find
out where you need to go to vote on November 6th. Polls are open from 7am to 8pm And if this is your first time voting in Pennsylvania,
you’ll need to bring an ID with you. A Pennsylvania driver’s license or state
ID, passport, student, military, or employee
ID all work. As does a recent bank statement, utility bill,
or paycheck with your name on it, a firearm permit, or the registration confirmation card
you’ll get in the mail after you register to vote. You can also go to your county elections office
website to get a sample ballot. There’s a link to find your county’s website
below. Your sample ballot tells you everything that
you’ll be able to vote for in the midterm election. You don’t have to vote for every single
thing on the ballot for it to count, but if you want a chance to do some research on the
candidates in your local elections, it’s a pretty good idea to look at a sample ballot
first. You can even fill it out and bring it to the
polls with you, so you can be sure you remember
how you want to vote. The best thing to do if you want to vote in
the midterms is to make a plan to vote right now—from what day you’re going to register
to whether you going to vote in person orabsentee. What kind of ID you’re going to use if you
need one, and where it is, even what time you’re going to vote and how you’re going
to get there—Write it down, put it in your notes app, text it to your friend, just make
a plan so that nothing unexpected stops you
from being counted on November 6th. There will be links for everything you need
to get registered and find your polling location
in description. Thank you for voting.
