Voter registration deadline is Monday for the Pennsylvania primary

    Today is the last day to register to vote in the Pennsylvania primary election.

    Applications can be filled out at county board of election offices, post offices, state liquor stores and free library branches. They’re also available online, where residents can also determine if they’re eligible to vote.

    Some guidelines about who qualifies, per the Committee of Seventy:

    Individual who has been a citizen of the United States for at least one month before May 21, has been a resident of Pennsylvania and his/her election district for at least 30 days before May 21, and is at least 18 years old on May 21 is eligible to vote. Voters who have moved or changed their name since the last time they voted should complete a new voter registration form.

    Forms can be submitted in person or by mail, but must be postmarked by April 22.

    Remember that Pennsylvania has closed primary elections. Only voters registered as Republican or Democrat can vote in the primary, and only for a candidate in the same party with which the voter is registered.

    The primary is May 21.
