May Primary Reminder

Are you registered to vote? If not, we encourage you to do so. There are four ways to register to vote in Pennsylvania. Here is some important information for you to remember for the May 17th primary election: The last day to register to vote is May 2nd, and the last day to request a mail-in or absentee ballot is May 10 by 5 pm.

Mail-in & absentee ballots must be received by your county election board no later than 8 pm election night. Mail-in and absentee ballots can be mailed or hand-delivered to your county elections office or handed in at your polling place before this deadline. Voters with disabilities can now mark their absentee or mail-in ballot electronically. Learn more about the accessible remote ballot marking solution.

For those interested in early voting, once your county finalizes and begins distributing mail-in and absentee ballots, you can request and complete one in person at your county board of elections office until May 10.

You do not have to register again if you are already registered to vote in Pennsylvania unless you need to change your name, address, or political party. If you are not sure if you are registered to vote, you can check your registration status

Some polling places may have changed due to redistricting. Remember that if you are voting at a polling place for the first time, you must show proof of identification. If you are unsure of the location, you can find your polling place here. The polls will be open from 7am-8pm on election day.

Poll workers are needed in Greene County in the boroughs of Clarksville, Rices Landing, the Morgan Chartiers/Teegarden precinct, Cumberland No. 2, Dunkard, Franklin South, Gilmore, and Greene townships. Poll workers are responsible for checking voters in, offering instructions on using voting machines, and enforcing the rules at polling places. Casual and floating positions are available. A signup form is available on the county’s website. Trainings will be held at the Greene County Fairgrounds on April 12th, 13th, and 14th at 9:30 a.m., 2 p.m., and 5:30 p.m. each day for those interested in becoming a poll worker.
