Tuesday’s the day: Democratic and Republican voters in Pennsylvania are choosing their nominees for governor, U.S. Senate, and a slate of other races.

Unless you requested a mail ballot, you’ll need to go to your assigned neighborhood polling place on Tuesday to cast your vote in person.

Places pressed into duty as vote centers in Philly range from schools to museums to libraries to building lobbies. And they sometimes move around — more than 50 divisions have switched locations since the last election, according to the Office of City Commissioners.

So be sure to check the map before you head for the polls, even if you’re a loyal in-person voter.

Some other reminders:

  • Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. If you get in line during those hours but are still waiting your turn once the clock strikes 8, stay in line! You’re still guaranteed the opportunity to vote.
  • You need to be registered as a Democrat or Republican to vote in most of the races that are up for grabs, but you can still go to the polls to weigh in on several city-level ballot questions if you’re an unaffiliated or third-party voter.
  • If it’s the first time you’re voting in your division, you’ll need to show an acceptable form of ID. (There are photo and non-photo options.) Otherwise, you do not need to show ID.

Philadelphia’s 705 polling places are mapped below, labeled with the wards and divisions they serve.

Not sure which ward or division you live in? You can type your address into Pennsylvania’s polling place search tool.
