Can you vote without an ID in Pennsylvania?

Registered voters in Pennsylvania must confirm their identity when they vote in their precinct for the first time..

If you do not present an acceptable ID, you may cast a provisional ballot.
If you are challenged at the polls on the basis of identity or residency, you may vote a regular ballot by:

  • signing a challenge affidavit


  • 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.
