Your 2022 Guide To Voting On Election Day

Election Day is just one day away, folks.

Last week, Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidates Josh Shapiro and Doug Mastriano, as well as U.S. Senate candidate John Fetterman, visited State College. Pennsylvania’s general election is expected to be a close one, so be sure to get out and vote.

As you get ready to cast your ballot, be sure that you’re up to date on voting information by checking out our guide below.

When To Vote

The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, November 8, for the general election. As long as you’re in line by 8 p.m., poll workers must count you, so don’t leave!

Where To Vote

Most Penn State students who live on campus will vote at the HUB. For those who live in White Course Apartments, head over to the Weston Community Center.

Students who live off campus can look up their polling place here. PSU Votes made a nifty map with the most common student polling locations, too.

This year, registered Centre County voters must’ve dropped their mail-in ballots off in secure drop boxes around town by 9 a.m. on Monday, November 7, which is a change from previous elections. Of course, if you missed this deadline, you can still vote in person.

What’s On The Ballot?

U.S. Senator candidates include John Fetterman (Democratic), Mehmet Oz (Republican), Erik Gerhardt (Libertarian), Richard L. Weiss (Green Party), and Daniel Wassmer (Keystone).

Governor/ lieutenant governor candidates include Josh Shapiro/ Austin Davis (Democratic), Doug Mastriano/ Carrie DelRosso (Republican), Matt Hackenburg/ Tim McMaster (Libertarian), Christina DiGiulio/ Michael Bagdes-Canning (Green Party), and Joe Soloski/ Nicole Shultz (Keystone).

You’ll have the chance to vote for U.S and Pennsylvania senate and house representatives, too.

You can view a sample ballot here based on your precinct. If you’re unsure what your precinct is, you can look it up by name, driver’s license number, or PennDot ID.

What Do You Need To Bring?

First–time voters will be required to show ID. Identification includes an employee ID, a Pennsylvania driver’s license or PennDOT ID card, an ID issued by any Commonwealth agency, an ID issued by the U.S. government, a U.S. passport, a U.S. Armed Forces ID, or a student ID.
