Tuesday May 17 is primary election day in Pennsylvania.
The primary is when Democrats and Republicans will choose who they want to win their party’s nomination to run for these seats in the general election in November:
- Pennsylvania’s US Senate seat
- Pennsylvania’s 17 US House of Representatives seats
- Half of Pennsylvania’s state Senate seats
- All 203 of Pennsylvania’s state House of Representatives seats
Republicans will also choose who they want to run on their ticket to be Pennsylvania’s governor. Democrat Josh Shapiro is currently unopposed.
What to Expect at the Polls
Polls will be open on May 17 from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
When you arrive at the polling place, you will check in with the poll workers. Follow their instructions, as the check-in process may have changed.
If it’s your first time voting at a new location, you must bring one of the approved forms of identification. Your ID doesn’t need to be a photo ID. There are many forms of non-photo ID that are acceptable.
If you are eligible to vote a regular ballot, you will either hand mark a paper ballot or vote using a ballot marking device. All Pennsylvania voting systems have been updated since 2018, and the voting systems are different from one county to another.
