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.
