Some people do not know about online voter registration. Pennsylvania now has online registration at www.votespa.com. Tell everyone.... especially young people. It's easy to register online.
Message from Rep Brian Sims:
2 million in Pa. aren't registered! Voting information now available by text;
Pennsylvania has just launched a voter registration text messaging service. Eligible Pennsylvania citizens can text the word "PA" to "2Vote" (28683) on their smartphones. The user will receive a link that provides direct access to the online voter registration application, voter registration status, polling place locator and link to contacts for county offices and the Department of State.
The text message link also provides users with important dates and deadlines significant to the Nov. 8 general election. (Standard messaging rates may apply.)
Know someone who's not registered to vote? Oct. 11 is the deadline to register before the Nov. 8 election, when candidates for president, U.S. senator and other offices will be on the ballot.
Questions? Call the Philadelphia voter registration office at 215-686-1591.
