The 1912 United States presidential election in Pennsylvania took place on November 5, 1912 throughout the continuous 48 states. This was the first time that Arizona and New Mexico took part in a presidential election having been admitted to the Union earlier in the year. Voters chose 38 representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for President and Vice President.

This election was a four-way contest. Pennsylvania voted for the Progressive nominee former President Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt over the Democratic nominee New Jersey Governor Woodrow Wilson, Republican nominee President William Howard Taft, and Socialist Party of America nominee union leader Eugene V. Debs. Roosevelt won Pennsylvania by a margin of 4.04%.
