CHAMBERSBURG–Today, Tuesday, Nov. 1, is Election Day. Do you know where your polling place is located? Are you still considered an active voter? If you are not sure, you can now check this information online through a new statewide initiative called a SURE Public Portal.
Upon logging on to www.pavoterservices.state.pa.us, you can immediately review the following information:
Find Voter Registration Status – This link allows a voter to search for voter registration status (Active or Inactive), party affiliation and polling place address.
The deadline to register to vote or to make any changes to your registration (name, address or party affiliation) for the upcoming 2021 Municipal Election was Oct. 18. If your voter registration is showing an outdated name or address and you missed the deadline to make the necessary changes, by law you can return to your old polling place and vote for one election.
While at the polling place, please ask the poll workers to provide the proper form to update your name and/or address for the next election. Once the Voter Registration Office processes your request, you will be mailed a new registration card with your updated information and polling place location.
Any questions concerning the upcoming election should be directed to the Voter Registration Office at (717) 261-3886 or the Franklin County Election Board at (717) 261-3810. You will also find additional election and voter registration information at the County’s website, www.franklincountypa.gov .
