If you’re 18 (or will be by November 8), tomorrow is the last day to register to vote! Luckily, it’s pretty simple to do in Pennsylvania–all you need to do is go to online here!
Not only will you be able to vote for our next president in the upcoming November 8 election, there are some other important officials you can vote for, too:
- One of PA’s two seats in the U.S. Senate;
- All 18 PA seats in the U.S. House of Representatives;
- The entire PA House of Representatives (203 seats);
- Half of the 50 seats in the PA Senate (Districts 1, 3, 5 and 7 in Philadelphia); and
- The state’s three row offices: Attorney General, Auditor General and Treasurer.
Not 18 yet? There are other ways you can get involved in the upcoming election! Committee of Seventy is inviting students from across Southeast Pennsylvania to submit their ideas for improving the election process or voter participation to the Election Innovation Challenge.
Things you can submit include ideas to increase voter turnout, help inform voters about candidates or voter procedures, simplify the voting process or improve the voting experience. STAMP Teen Council’s Lila Vanni participated this past spring and won second place! Her proposal argued that 17-year-olds be allowed to participate in spring primaries to boost turnout among young voters in the fall general election.
Interested in participating? Find out more about the challenge here.
