Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
A photo ID is not required to vote. If you are voting at your polling place for the first time, you must bring an ID (not necessarily with a photo). Acceptable forms of ID are shown here.
If your registration is challenged, you are entitled to a provisional ballot which will be counted if you are later determined to be eligible.
Additional information about registering and voting is available at the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania website votesPA.
To apply for an absentee ballot, call the Division of Elections, 412-350-4520, for an Absentee Ballot Application Form or download it here.

A 2015 report on a conference on redistricting reform is posted here. Chris Carson, elected LWVUS president at the 2016 convention, led a panel on overcoming entrenched interests as part of this conference. Chris has been involved in redistricting efforts in California since 2009.
The report includes a brief discussion of project "You Draw the Lines 2021" -- an initiative that you can explore here.
