The Primary Election Is Here!

Happy Tuesday, Activists!

 

We hope you had a wonderful weekend.  We have 21 days until the primary election, so you know what that means!  Its time to get ready -- find out who is running for which offices, their positions on the issues, and where, when and how you can vote.  It's all below, you super voters! 

 

Check out last week's newsletter for the Call to Action and voter outreach 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! 

 

Here are the important deadlines coming up -- 

1.  Last day to register to vote in the primary -- April 8th. 

 

2.  Last day to sign up for a mail-in ballot -- April 16th. Sign up here.  

You must do it before 5:00 pm on  April 16th.  But do it NOW so you have time to review the ballot when you receive it.

 

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 already 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.

 

4.  If you're not mailing it, drop it in a drop box.  Here is the list of drop boxes for Philadelphia.  If you're mailing it, we recommend you mail it before April 15th to be sure it arrives in time. 

 

5.  Find your polling place at this link. 

 

6.  More information is at Linktr.ee/VotePHL or call these numbers– 877-868-3772 or 215-686-3469.

 

7.  Want to vote at the polls after receiving your mail-in ballot? You can!  Take it to the polls (with the envelopes) and they’ll take care of you. 

 

8.  If you have any problems at the polls at all, you can always vote on a provisional ballot. It will be counted.
