Registered voters in Pennsylvania must confirm their identity when they vote at their polling place for the first time.
If you are a registered first-time voter at your precinct but do not present an acceptable ID, you may cast a provisional ballot.
If you are challenged on the basis of identity or residency, you may vote a regular ballot by signing a challenge affidavit and producing a witness who is also a registered voter in the precinct to vouch for you. If you cannot or do not want to produce a witness, you may cast a provisional ballot. Identity, residency, and qualifications as an eligible voter are the only basis for challenging a voter at a polling place.
If you vote a provisional ballot: Within 7 days after the election, the county board of elections will decide whether you were eligible to vote at the election district where you voted the provisional ballot. If you were eligible, they will count your provisional ballot.
