State Alison Lundergan Grimes said mid-term elections usually result in strong voter turnout.

Pennsylvania residents who want to vote in next month's primary have until 11:59 Monday, April 16th to register. "As of today, more than half a million people have used to register, check or update their registration, or use the other voter tools", said Grimes.

An "inactive" status on the registration does not mean the resident can't vote; it just shows the voter has not voted in recent elections.

By mail, a registration application can be downloaded and mailed to a County Clerk or to the Secretary of State's Office.
