Vote in Person Outside of Pennsylvania

Voting in person is just like it sounds. When you register, you’re assigned to a SPECIFIC polling location in your region. On election day, go to that polling location during their prescribed hours to cast your vote. Some states (not Pennsylvania) allow people to cast their votes in person prior to election day. Once you’ve decided to vote in person, schedule a specific time to vote (e.g., 2pm) and put that in your calendar. Locate your polling place and map out directions.
Remember: College students have the right to register to vote at the address they consider the place where they live — whether that’s their family's home or the place where they attend school. You may only be registered and vote in one location.
