Voters reminded to register for upcoming election

CHAMBERSBURG – Residents of Franklin County who want to vote in the 2020 Presidential Election Nov. 3 are reminded to make sure they are registered by Oct. 19.

That is also the deadline for a voter to change their name, address and/or party

affiliation, and all forms must be received by county officials by that date in order to be valid.

Eligible voters must have been a citizen of the U.S. for at least one month; have been a resident of Pennsylvania and the election district in which you seek to register and vote

for at least 30 days; and be at least 18 years of age.

Voter registration may be completed online at or in person at the Franklin County Voter Registration Office in the Old Courthouse, 2 N. Main St., Chambersburg from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday or by mail by downloading a voter registration application available from the Department of State’s website at or from the county website at

Once the registration application is processed, new voters will receive a voter registration card in the mail which will notate the location of their polling place.

Voters are no longer purged due to non-voting, so those who are registered but haven’t voted in a while are most likely still eligible.

To search for your voter registration status—active or inactive—or your party affiliation or polling place address, log onto the SURE Public Portal at or call the Voter Registration Office at 717-261-3886. You can also find additional election information on the county website at
