PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Today is the day.
If you’re planning to vote in this year’s presidential election on November 3rd and aren’t registered, you only have a few hours left.
If you want to register to vote, you have until 5:00 p.m. tonight.
All you need is your drivers license or ID card — if you don’t have that, you’ll be asked for your social security number.
You have multiple ways to get your registration in.
The first option is to use the state’s online voter registration system.
Another option is submit a paper registration form to your county election office.
Your registration must be received by 5:00 p.m. on Monday.
To qualify to vote, you must be:
- A United States citizen, a resident of Pennsylvania, and a resident of your district for at least 30 days before the election
- 18 years old
The Black Political Empowerment Project helped people with their applications at their headquarters in the Hill District.
“Also we will give them the mail-in ballot application,” B-PEP President and CEO Tim Stevens said. “We’re at a moment where the direction of the country is at stake.”
The organization will be helping with applications until 4 pm when they will take them down to the county offices.
Once your registration is accepted, you will get a voter card in the mail, and it will tell you where to vote.
