How to Register to Vote in Schuylkill County

Registering to vote is really simple, even if it’s getting close to the deadline.

Visit the Schuylkill County Election Bureau

Your best bet is to head to the Schuylkill County Election Bureau office in Pottsville. There, you can fill out registration forms, get approved and be ready to vote in November.

Schuylkill County Election Bureau is located at:

  • Schuylkill County Election Bureau
    400 N Centre St
    Pottsville PA  17901

Mail in the PA Voter Registration Form

You can get the paper version of the Voter Registration form and get it filled out. Send it to the county election office and they’ll approve it if everything checks out on it. And in a few weeks, they’ll send you your voter registration card.


Note: You don’t actually need a voter registration card to vote in your precinct.

Register Online says you can now register to vote online in Pennsylvania. It’s probably true but if you’re really close to the registration deadline, we’re going to suggest going to the election office downtown.

But you can roll the dice and register here using the Pennsylvania accessible online form.

Go to PennDOT

The Driver’s License center in Schuylkill Haven is another place you can register to vote. It’s just one of several state offices that allow you to register to vote. According to, here are the other places that let you get on the voter roll:

  • Public assistance
  • Armed Forces recruiting centers
  • County Clerk of Orphans’ Court offices, including each Marriage License Bureau
  • Area Agencies on Aging
  • Centers for Independent Living
  • County Mental Health and Mental Retardation offices
  • Student disability services offices of the State System of Higher Education
  • Offices of Special Education
  • DA Complementary Paratransit offices
  • Any agency using the Compass application
