Some Voting Tips

If you are voting at your polling place for the first time, you must bring a Photo ID such as a driver's license, student ID or some other form of US or PA government issued ID or a US or PA government issued non-photo ID that shows your address such as a voter identification card, a firearm permit, or a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, or government check. Details here.

Otherwise a photo ID will be requested, but it is not required to vote, and you do not need to show it. Details here.

If your registration is challenged, you are entitled to a provisional ballot which will be counted if you are later determined to be eligible.

We expect the 2014 League of Women Voters Guide to the Primary Election to be published in The New Pittsburgh Courier on May 7, 2014.
