Election Day Nearing…..VOTE!!


Pennsylvania, with its 23 electoral votes, is expected to be one of the key states in this year’s presidential race.

Election Day is November 4. It doesn’t matter who you vote for, but you have to get out there and do it. No excuse. Really no excuse.

To find out where your polling place is, call 412-350-4500, or click on http://apps.county.allegheny.pa.us/VoteDistricts/.

If you are voting for the first time, or for the first time in a new district, you must have a photo ID, such as a driver’s license, a PennDOT ID card, a military ID card, passport, student or employee ID. Approved forms of non-photo ID are: a voter’s ID card issued by the voter registration commission; a firearm permit; or a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck or government check including the name and address of the voter.

You can receive an absentee ballot if you are unable to got to the polls because of illness or physical disability, or if you will be absent on election day because of duties, occupation or business; or if you are observing a religious holiday on election day. Absentee ballot applications can be picked up at the Allegheny County Division of Elections, Forbes Avenue and Ross Street, Downtown, or by calling 412-350-4520. Business hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Be sure to call early. Completed absentee ballots must be received in the Division of Elections no later than 5 p.m., Tuesday, October 28.

If you believe you are being denied your legal right to vote, each polling place is staffed with a judge of elections, a majority and minority clerk, and a constable.
