Time for voters to get registered

Posted: March 20, 2012

MONDAY is the deadline to register to vote in Pennsylvania's April 24 primary election.

Voters can check their registration status, download a voter-registration form and find polling place information at VotesPA.com.

Voter-registration eligibility for the primary requires individuals to be 18 years old, a U.S. citizen for at least one month and a resident for at least 30 days of the Pennsylvania election district in which they plan to register and vote.

Voters participating in the primary will be asked to produce photo identification as part of the state's new voter-ID law. Although the ID won't be required to vote in this primary, it will be required for the fall general election.

Voters without an acceptable form of photo ID can obtain one for free at any PennDOT driver's license center.
