Today is the 2022 Primary Election in Pennsylvania. Voters for each party will be picking their candidates for two statewide races for United States Senator and Governor of Pennsylvania; voters will also be picking candidates for Lt. Governor, which is then attached to the ticket of the winning gubernatorial candidate. On a more local level, candidates for state representatives and a few state senate seats, as well as the United States House of Representatives will also be selected. Unlike last year, this year’s primary includes no constitutional amendments.
Polls are open from 7AM until 8PM. If you are voting in person for the first time or voting at a new polling location, Pennsylvania Law requires that you bring a valid form of identification. Valid ID includes any photographic ID issued by the state such as a Driver’s License or PennDOT ID, or by the Federal Government like a Passport or Armed Forces ID Card; nonphotographic ID such as a confirmation card from the County Voter registration office, a current paycheck, utility bills, and others can also be acceptable ID. Learn more about ID and check your polling location at vote.pa.gov.
