How can we encourage more active participatio...

How can we encourage more active participation in elections? Change starts with us, and it starts by exercising your franchise. There are few people who legitimately can't vote, even formerly incarcerated and some who are currently incarcerated can. So let's do this!

    What we can learn from low Pa. primary election turnout, and why it matters that just 1 in 6 Philly voters showed up
    Turnout in Tuesday's primary election was lower in the city than in the rest of the state. Experts cited many reasons for that, and a resultant problem: Uneven voting makes for uneven representation. - Jonathan Lai, Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News

    A Philadelphia resident was shocked to receive a letter Friday saying they won an election earlier in the month - apparently because no one else cast a vote. "I literally yelled 'what the hell' when I opened the letter," Phillip Garcia told The Hill.

One of the ballot questions for next week.

    Philly voters to decide if city workers will be trained to prevent sexual harassment
    Since the #MeToo movement has gained momentum over the last nine months, corporations across the country and in Philadelphia are evaluating their policies on sexual harassment and sexual misconduct. Many employees have sat through training sessions on the topic. But for city workers in Philadelphia - which does have a prevention policy - there's no mandatory training in place.
