New voters have until Saturday to register for June’s primary election – or Friday, for those who plan to register in person.
Elections offices in York, Chester and Lancaster counties can take registration up until close of business on Friday. After that, it will be too late for new voters to register in person, or existing voters to change their address, for the June 14 Democratic and Republican primaries.
But Saturday – 30 days before election day – is the legal deadline to register, and residents still will have a couple of options to register then. Online registration can be submitted until midnight Saturday at SCVotes.org. You can also mail a registration form and still make the June voter rolls as long as the envelope is postmarked Saturday.
Once you’re registered, you can start voting. The elections offices in Chester and Lancaster counties have already begun issuing absentee ballots, and York County will begin accepting absentee ballots on Monday.
