“Today’s the deadline to register to vote in Pa. primary”

Article Link

This April 21, 2014 WITF article reminds us that today is the last day people who want to vote in the primary elections will be able to register to vote.  If you plan on voting be sure to ask yourself, “Am I registered to vote at my current address?”  If you have moved and plan on voting, it is important you register for your current address so you can be sure to have your voice heard on election day.

You can register to vote at any time, but today is the deadline for being able to vote in the primary.  So If you register tomorrow or next week, you will be in good shape for the general election in November, just not the primary.
