Pennsylvania is home to so many American heroes: Benjamin Franklin, Rocky Balboa, Gritty. It's also home to big wins: In 2018, you bested gerrymandering and got yourselves some fair representation in Washington. In 2020, you survived Four Season Total Landscaping—oh yeah, and elected Joe Biden. In 2022, you successfully sent Dr. Oz back to New Jersey where he belongs. Now grab yourself a Wawa hoagie to fuel up for November. Here’s everything you need to know to be a voter in the Keystone State.

  • Can I vote by mail?

    Yes! You must apply for a ballot by May 9th and your absentee ballot must be received by May 16th, but the earlier, the better. (Please don't keep us waiting. It stresses us out too much).

    if you are voting by mail from within your voting precinct you should request a mail in ballot. If you are voting by mail from a location outside of your voting precinct (eg. you'll be out of town) you should request an absentee ballot. In order to apply for an absentee or mail-in ballot, you must supply proof of identification.

  • Can I vote early?

    Yes, although in PA it's technically in-person absentee. Basically, you request and fill out your absentee ballot at your town/city clerk's office, so you don't need to wait for the mail. The last day to do this is May 9th, and the start dates may vary.
