If you want to vote, you have to register. Click here for detailed information about the regsitration and voting process for college students in Pennsylvania. 

If you'd rather, you can fill out a paper form (PDF), print it, and mail it in.

The deadline for registering to vote in a Pennsylvania election is thirty days before the election. If you mail your form, it must be postmarked by that date.

If you've moved here from another state and you'd prefer to vote there, you'll need to register in that state and then vote by absentee ballot. You can register and find out more about absentee voting at Rock the Vote.

First-time voters in Pennsylvania will need to bring identification. VotesPA will tell you where you vote as well as provide you with other helpful information.
