    Monday is the final day to register to vote in Pennsylvania’s April 26 presidential primaries in Pennsylvania. 

    You can register online at the state website  https://www.pavoterservices.state.pa.us/Pages/VoterRegistrationApplication.aspx or go to your county board of elections office.  

    More than a quarter million Pennsylvanians have signed up since the site opened online in August, said Secretary of State Pedro Cortés. And that eases the burden on municipalities.

    “For the counties, what that means is that it’s taking away from the labor-intensive data entry sometimes for registration forms that are illegible,” he said.

    And Cortés anticipated it will make it easier for registered voters to change addresses or their names.

    “One of the biggest challenges we have in keeping our voter roles clean is that people move or no longer have the same information,” he said. “And the process on paper is a bit cumbersome.”

    Cortés said he hopes the online system will smooth out that process.
