Voters will head to the polls in Pennsylvania today for the Republican and Democratic primary elections. The GOP presidential primary lost some of its heat when Rick Santorum suspended his campaign earlier this month (though he's still on the ballot) but there are many important races that could be decided, including the race for the Democratic candidate for Pennsylvania attorney general.
Polls will open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. today. Here are some resources for voters:
Find your polling place here. Remember, today's primaries are for voters who are registered in a major party.
Today's primary will be a test-drive of Pennsylvania's new Voter ID law. You may be asked to show your ID at the polls, but you may vote even if you don't have it. (Voters voting for the first time, or for the first time in that polling place, must bring acceptable photo ID.)
In November, you must bring acceptable photo ID to the polls to vote.
Learn more about the new Voter ID law here. If you have questions about the new law, call 1‐866‐OUR‐VOTE (1‐866‐687‐8683), an election protection hotline run by the Committee of 70 and the Pennsylvania Voter ID Coalition.
