About This State
Pennsylvania is home to so many American heroes: Benjamin Franklin, Rocky Balboa, Gritty. It's also home to big wins: In 2018, you bested gerrymandering and got yourselves some fair representation in Washington. Now grab yourself a Wawa hoagie to fuel up for November. Here’s everything you need to know to be a voter in the Keystone State.Register To Vote
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf is proposing changes to the state's election laws that would extend deadlines for mail-in ballots and speed up the appointment of poll workers.
The US Supreme Court ruled that Pennsylvania ballots will count if received by Friday after Election Day by 5 p.m. the Friday after the Nov. 3 election. To count, ballots arriving after Election Day must either be postmarked by Nov. 3 or have no proof they were sent afterward. Keep checking the PA Elections site for the most recent updates.
Why Is This State Special
Pennsylvania was Trump’s most surprising win in 2016, thanks to the extra 290,000 votes he earned in rural parts of the state. But since then, the state Supreme Court threw out the GOP’s gerrymandered congressional map — considered the most partisan in the country — and Democrats have flipped Republican seats in a special election and in the 2018 midterms. This map is only temporary, so Democrats need our help to turn out on November 3 and lock in this progress for good.ROAD TO WIN

Get Mitch or Die Trying
Mad that the Senate isn't doing anything except passing a corporate tax cut, even in the amidst of a pandemic? Blame the self-described "Grim Reaper" of progress, Mitch McConnell. With 18% approval in his home state, he probably shouldn't be leading the country. Time to take the gavel away.
