Posted on 10/31/2013 12:48:28 PM

Election Day is Tuesday, November 5, 2013. Here’s what you need to know about voting if you’re a student living on or off campus.

Where to Vote

Students who live on campus:

Find your polling place on your voter registration card, or you can check PA Voter Services.

Students living on campus will be assigned to vote at Zink Hall or Pratt Hall. You can vote only at your assigned polling place.

Students who live off campus:

Find your polling place on your voter registration card or at PA Voter Services. Remember, you can vote only at your assigned polling place.

When to Vote

Polls are open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. If you're standing in line at a polling location at 8:00 p.m., you have the right to vote.

What to Bring

A photo ID is not required in this election. But, if you’re voting for the first time in a precinct, you do need to show ID. Some acceptable forms include:

  • I-Card with or without an expiration date sticker
  • Your voter registration card
  • Current utility bill showing name and address
  • Pennsylvania driver's license

See a complete list at PA Voter Services.

Am I Registered?

If you registered to vote on campus, you should have received a voter registration card at your mailing address. If you haven’t received your card, check to make sure you're registered to vote at PA Voter Services.

If you’re listed as registered, just go and vote. If you’re not listed as registered, but you did complete a voter registration form, call your county board of elections. Find phone numbers at PA Voter Services. The Indiana county number is (724) 465-3852.

Note: If you’re told at the polling place that you’re ineligible to vote, you have the right to request a provisional ballot.
