Pennsylvania – If you’re not already registered to vote, if you’ve recently moved, or if you want to change your party affiliation, today is the last day to register to vote in this year’s November election.
Although the election on Tuesday, Nov. 7 isn’t for any presidential candidates, the ballot does include seats on the Supreme Court, Commonwealth Court, and Superior Court.
For example, for the Supreme Court ballot, Justice Sallie Mundy is up against Allegheny County Judge Dwayne Woodruff. Mundy is a Republican who was appointed to fill a vacancy last year. She wants the seat for a full 10-year term. Woodruff, a Democrat, is a former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive back who became a lawyer while playing in the NFL.
You’ll also be asked to vote on whether municipalities should be given the choice to not have any property taxes for homeowners.
You can register to vote online at the Pennsylvania government’s website, or your county courthouse can help you.
