Deadline Fast Approaching To Register To Vote

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – The Franklin County Voter Registration Office shares the following important information on key dates ahead of the Nov. 7 Municipal Election.

How do I submit my initial voter registration application or change of name, address and/or party affiliation?

1. Submit online by going to register.votespa.com

2. By mail in one of two ways:

  • Obtain a state or federal voter registration mail application from a candidate, political party or other federal, state and municipal offices. You may also request one from the Department of State’s website at www.vote.pa.gov.
  • Download the voter registration application available from the Department of State’s website, www.vote.pa.gov, or from Franklin County’s website, www.franklincountypa.gov.


IMPORTANT: If you are already registered and just need to update your information, you will need to check one of the boxes on the voter registration form to either Change Name, Change Address and/or Change Party.


3. Apply at a government agency. Clients of these government agencies may apply to register to vote or make a change to their registration at:

  • State offices that provide public assistance and services to persons with disabilities
  • Armed forces recruitment centers
  • Counties’ Clerk of Courts offices
  • Area Agencies on Aging and county mental health/intellectual disabilities offices
  • Centers for Independent Living


What is the deadline to register to vote or change my name, address and/or party on my voter registration?


The deadline to apply for a Change of Name, Address and/or Party or to make a New Registration for the upcoming Municipal Election is Oct. 23. If your application is received or postmarked after that date, it will be processed for the 2024 Presidential Primary. Once the application is processed, each voter will receive a voter registration card in the mail, which will notate the location of his or her polling place.
