The 1956 United States presidential election in Pennsylvania took place on November 6, 1956 throughout the continuous 48 states, but not Alaska or Hawaii which would be admitted to the Union in 1959. Voters chose 32 representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for President and Vice President.
