Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/14/2020 -- As people all over the U.S. celebrate the beginning of a new year and the opportunities it brings, the attorneys at Silver & Silver turn their attention to the upcoming presidential election. On November 3, 2020, American citizens can exercise their right to choose who will lead their government on the national, state, and local levels and Silver & Silver strongly encourages all Philadelphia area residents to register to vote so they can take part in the democratic process.
Residents of Pennsylvania who will be 18 years old or older on Election Day and are U.S. citizens are eligible to vote. In New Jersey, the minimum age for voting is 17. In Pennsylvania, the deadline for registration is October 4, 2020, and in New Jersey, the deadline is October 13, 2020.
Eligible individuals can register to vote by submitting a registration application form online or by mail.

Individuals must register to vote in the county where they live.
