Deadline for registering to vote in Pennsylvania this year is 1 week away, on Oct. 5


HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania — The deadline for registering to vote in Pennsylvania's Nov. 3 election is one week away.

Secretary of State Pedro Cortes reminded residents Monday that they can register online for the first time. But he says people who do not have a PennDOT driver's license or PennDOT identification card should apply before the Oct. 5 deadline if they use the new electronic system.

In addition to thousands of local school board, municipal and judicial races, voters will fill three open seats on the seven-member Pennsylvania Supreme Court. There also are two other state appellate court openings — one each in the Superior and Commonwealth courts.

Pennsylvanians also can still register by mail or in-person at many state and county offices.
