Vigil to Protect Voting Rights

From Moving the Needle, the League of Women Voters of Delaware County and other organizations are hosting a vigil to protect voting rights tomorrow (Friday, Aug 6th) at 6 pm on the Media Courthouse steps. Rep. Scanlon and other leaders will be speaking. Invisible has a page about S.1, the For the People Act here. The For the People Act has its own Wikpedia page describing its provisions here. Many of these provisions would drag Pennsylvania’s antiquated election system into the modern era by offering same day registration, require early voting, automatic voter registration, improved voting by mail and finally make Election Day a federal holiday.

The League of Women Voters of Delaware County is a critical group for our local democracy. They are one of the few groups that regularly hosts local candidate forums and host information on candidates running for office. Their vote411 site is an important resource where you can read statements provided by local candidates.
