The 1984 United States presidential election in Pennsylvania took place on November 6, 1984 throughout all 50 states and D.C., which was part of the 1984 United States presidential election. Voters chose 25 representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for President and Vice President.

Pennsylvania voted for the Republican nominee, President Ronald Reagan, over the Democratic nominee, former Vice President Walter Mondale. Reagan won Pennsylvania by a margin of 7.35%.

Reagan won the state by sweeping rural central Pennsylvania and performing well in the traditionally Republican suburbs of southeastern Pennsylvania, but the race was kept within single digits by Mondale's strong showing in traditionally Democratic Western Pennsylvania, along with decisive double-digit wins in the cities of Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.
