Not sure if you are registered to vote in PA? You can find out by searching Pennsylvania's voter registration database. You also can confirm your registration by contacting your County Board of Elections or by calling 1-877-VOTESPA.

Student Government Board will be providing transportation throughout the day from the McFarland Student Union for students needing a ride to the polling location on Quarry Road on Tuesday, Nov. 5 for the polling time period of 7am-8pm.  Last departure is 7:30pm.   Simply come to the MSU Shuttle Stop and get a ride.  The vans will make a departure every 20 minutes.  Questions?

PA's Voter ID law requires all voters to present photo ID when voting at the polls, but those photo ID requirements are NOT currently in effect. All voters will be asked to present photo ID when they appear at the polls to vote, but they will be allowed to cast a regular ballot without a photo ID. Voters who are voting for the first time in a polling place are still required under existing law to present a form of ID. The KU One Card Office in MSU 288 has stickers to place on valid KU Student ID cards so they can be used as a valid form of ID.
