Where to register to vote for Pa. primaries before Monday's deadline

Residents with valid Pennsylvania drivers licenses or PennDOT IDs can complete forms online

Whether you #FeelTheBern or #StandWithHer; whether you want to #StopTrump or #MakeAmericaGreatAgain; or even if you're still undecided — if you want your voice to be heard in Pennsylvania's primaries on April 26, you have to be registered to vote before the end of Monday. 

The presidential primary has the highest profile, but Pennsylvania's voters also will get to choose party nominees for the U.S. Senate and, depending on the district, the U.S. House of Representatives, as well as the Pennsylvania attorney general, auditor general and treasurer.

Pennsylvania's primary is closed, so you must register as a Republican or Democrat to vote. 

The clock is ticking, but there are still plenty of places where citizens can register to vote. Check out the list below. (If you think you may be registered already, click here to check for your name in Pennsylvania's voter registration database.)
