Issues that matter to many college students may be affected by the outcome of the 2016 election — and voter turnout, especially among younger voters, will make a difference. To make your voice heard cast your ballot on Election Day, Nov. 8, 2016.

In Pennsylvania, students who are attending college may choose ONE of these options:

  • Register to vote at your school address.
  • Register (or remain registered) at your permanent address; in this case, you may need to vote by absentee ballot.

Learn more about voter registration and ID, polling places and types of ballots, and how registering to vote may affect students like you.
