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

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 Votes.

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 Votes. 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.
