Get Ready to Vote

Happy Tuesday, Activists!

 

The primary election is only a week away and we hope you are ready to vote - or have already voted with your mail-in ballot.  If not and you still need some information, see below!  And if you have friends or family who still need some information about the candidates or the elections in general, please send this newsletter to them.

 

And looking at this election and toward November, we have opportunities for you to contact voters to get them ready to vote.  Our intrepid Neighborhood Leaders are out there now, canvassing and writing postcards to their neighbors in our 35 Doors Project.  You can learn more here.  We will be gearing up for our regular canvassing very soon but in the meantime, below is an opportunity to canvass now.  Plus more opportunities!

MAIL-IN BALLOT &  ELECTION DAY INFO

 

Here is a whole lot of voting information for you.  Check it out for yourself and share with your friends and neighbors.  You'd be surprised how many voters will think this primary election is not important but are open to hearing about it.  Sharing your knowledge may get a voter to the polls!

 

We have three PA statewide races that are very important to our lives -- PA Attorney General, PA Auditor General and PA Treasurer.  By telling your friends, you'll be doing a big deal to get the vote out! 

 

The important deadline NOW -- 

Last day to sign up for a mail-in ballot -- TODAY BY 5:00! Do it here.  

 

Here are the Mail-in Ballot and Election Day tips --

1.  Election Day is Tuesday, April 23rd. Polls are open from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm.  If you are in line by 8:00 you can still vote.  Find your polling place at this link.

 

2.  If you have signed up to vote by mail, you can check your ballot status at this link.

 

3.  Your voted Mail-in Ballot must be received by the Election Board by 8:00 pm on Election Day.  Again track the status of your application and ballot at this link.
