Mark Wolosik, division manager of Allegheny County Elections, said people can still to register to vote in person or can mail in registration forms downloaded at www.votespa.com.
“When you get onto that link, you can download a voter registration application," he said. "It still has to be printed out on paper and completed on paper and signed. And it must be postmarked not later than by this coming Monday.”
The Elections Office will accept voter registration forms in person from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Monday at the County Office Building in downtown Pittsburgh.
Approved applicants will receive a certificate of voter registration showing municipality, ward and/or election district, and assigned polling place.
Individuals must be registered in a political party in order to vote in that party’s primary.
