Snail mail, City Hall and even the liquor store: How to register to vote in PA

Voter Reg

With the Philadelphia primary elections coming up on May 19, you have until April 20 to get registered to vote if you’re not registered yet. To vote in the primaries, you must be a Republican or Democrat, be 18 and a U.S. Citizen and be a PA resident for at least 30 days before the election. Here are the several ways you can get registered.

  • Mail: Download, print and fill out this application and then send it or deliver it in person to 520 N. Columbus Blvd., 5th Floor, Philadelphia, PA, 19123
  • Mail 2: If you’re out and about, you can pick up applications at public libraries, post offices and even state liquor stores. Then mail it to the address above.
  • In person: Go to the Voter Registration office at 520 N. Columbus or the Philadelphia County Board of Elections, which is Room 142 at City Hall. You can also register at a PennDot location when you update or obtain a driver’s license.
