  • Are at least 18 years old by Election Day
  • Are a resident of Pennsylvania
  • Live in the precinct where you vote for at least 30 days prior to the election

Restorative Requirements

Service members and their dependents may register and request a ballot using the overseas voter registration/ballot request form ("FPCA"). You may include the following ID:

U.S. citizens living abroad have the right to vote as absentee voters, provided they are eligible to vote in their state. If you are living outside of the U.S. permanently, indefinitely, or temporarily, your voting rights stay with you, even if you never voted when you lived in the U.S. To vote from overseas:
  • Complete and send an overseas voter registration/ballot request form to your election office in the U.S. This is one specific form that will register you as an overseas voter and request your absentee ballot – simultaneously.

Can I vote if I have a record?

Please use our eligibility tool to find out if you can vote.

I am a college student. Where do I register to vote?

Students who lived in Pennsylvania before moving elsewhere to attend school, and who wish to establish or keep their Pennsylvania voting residency (i.e., at their parents’ Pennsylvania address), should have no problem doing so unless they have already registered to vote in another state. Students attending school in Pennsylvania should be able to register and vote at their school address because Pennsylvania law gives students the explicit right to register to vote in the district where they attend college. For this reason, it is highly unlikely that you would have your registration denied on the basis of residency or face a residency challenge in Pennsylvania.

  • Your Pennsylvania Driver's License Number
