Voting Information

Voter ID
Whether and when the Voter ID law will be fully in effect for future elections is not certain and is currently in litigation. Pennsylvania's Voter ID law requires all voters to present photo ID when voting at the polls, but those photo ID requirements are not currently in effect.
Vote Button
All voters will be asked to present photo ID when they appear at the polls to vote, but they will be allowed to cast a regular ballot without a photo ID. Voters who are voting for the first time in a polling place are still required under existing law to present a form of ID.

Polling Sites
The Allegheny County Department of Administration, Elections Division, attempts to maintain consistent polling sites for each area of the township. Registered voters should contact the township a few weeks before the election inquiring as to when and where to vote for their elected officials. Voting is normally conducted from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on election day. If you are unsure of when and where you vote or if you would like more information, please feel free to call the Township offices at 412-486-0400 or 724-443-7585.
