  • Familiarize yourself with the voting system at your polling place by viewing the voting system demonstration. Select "York" from the drop-down list of counties. 
  • If you're a new United States citizen living in Pennsylvania, you might also want to review this Guide For New Citizens, which is produced by the state of Pennsylvania.

Know When Polling Places Open and Close

  • ID issued by the U.S. Government
  • U.S. passport

If you do not bring your ID on Election Day, vote with a provisional ballot. You will have six days to provide your photo ID and/or affirmation to our office to have your ballot count. 


You are not registered to vote until your application has been processed and accepted by the York County Department of Elections and Voter Registration. If accepted, we will send you, via nonforwardable mail, a confirmation. If you do not receive a confirmation within 14 days of the date you submit the application, contact us.

Getting Assistance While Voting

Voters who have a disability, have physical limitations or have limited English proficiency can ask for assistance at the polling place. Voters may also contact our office before Election Day to ask for assistance.

What To Do If You Have a Complaint

On Election Day, most complaints can be handled by the Judge of Elections at your polling place.

However, for some complaints concerning regulation of Election Day activities, contact the York County Department of Elections & Voter Registration.

If you feel that a violation of Title III of the Help America Vote Act of 2002 has occurred, is occurring, or is about to occur, you may file a formal complaint with the Pennsylvania Department of State.

Any voter who wishes to file a formal complaint may visit the HAVA (Help America Vote Act) site to download a “Title III Complaint Form” or request a complaint form at the polling place.
