Presidential election years always attract more voters to the polls. But sometimes, polling places change between elections, which can lead to last-minute confusion.

Pennsylvania has a website where anyone can easily search for their designated voting location.

Start here.
 

After you type in your county, you will be prompted to enter your city. Choose the city on your mailing address, which is not necessarily your township or borough.
 


 

Then comes your street name and finally your house number.


 

Your polling location will be displayed, along with a way to get directions.

You must be registered to vote. Click here to confirm your voter registration status. Also, photography is forbidden inside the polling place so forget about taking a selfie. 

If it’s your first time voting, you may want to watch this video demonstration of Allegheny County’s voting machines.
 

If you are voting for the first time at your voting location, bring one of the following IDs with you:
 

  • Photo ID issued by any Pennsylvania agency or the US government
     
  • US passport
     
  • US Armed Forces ID
     
  • Student ID
     
  • Employee ID
     

If you don’t have a photo ID, you can bring any of the following:
 

  • Confirmation from a county voter registration office
     
  • Non-photo ID issued by Pennsylvania or the US government
     
  • Firearm permit
     
  • Current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck or government check
