Today is the last day to register to vote in May 15 primary elections in Pennsylvania.

State residents can register online in the state, at this site .

U.S. citizens who are at least 18 and have been Pennsylvania residents for 30 days or more by the primary date can register.

Registered Republicans will choose nominees for governor and the U.S. Senate, and each party has multiple candidates running for lieutenant governor.

All U.S. House seats and Pennsylvania state House seats are up for election this year, along with half of state senators. Members of state and county party committees will also appear on ballots.

Voters who aren't registered with either party can still vote in a special election in state House District 48 in Washington County, along with districts 68 and 178, in the north-central and southeastern parts of the state.

Non-registered voters can also vote on ballot questions in Bridgeville, Collier, Heidelberg, Scott, Monroeville, West Deer and Braddock, according to an Allegheny County news release.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
