“Today’s the deadline to register to vote in Pa. primary”

Article Link

This April 21, 2014 WITF article reminds us that today is the last day people who want to vote in the primary elections will be able to register to vote.  If you plan on voting be sure to ask yourself, “Am I registered to vote at my current address?”  If you have moved and plan on voting, it is important you register for your current address so you can be sure to have your voice heard on election day.

You can register to vote at any time, but today is the deadline for being able to vote in the primary.  So If you register tomorrow or next week, you will be in good shape for the general election in November, just not the primary.

DVC calls for ‘performance audit’

The following was emailed to me from someone involved with the Disability Voting Coalition of PA it is information that needs attention by DVC members prior to the Monthly Organizer Call I posted about recently that is coming up on October 20, 2010.  Also remember that membership with the Disability Voting Coalition is free and more information can be found at … http://www.dvcpa.org/

The file that was attached to the email can be found here ….  DVC_Auditor_General_Letter ( Adobe Acrobat reader is needed to view this file it is free)

The Disability Voting Coalition believes it is time to ask Auditor General Jack Wagner to conduct a “Performance Audit” of Pennsylvania’s compliance with the voter registration requirements of the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA).

We need your support.

Follow the links in the attached letter ( DVC_Auditor_General_Letter ) to join our coalition of groups asking for this Performance Audit.

Please act before Wednesday, October 20th so that we can include your organization’s name in the request to Auditor General Wagner.

The Disability Voting Coalition has been tracking Pennsylvania’s performance under the NVRA.  The NVRA requires Pennsylvania to regularly offer voter registration opportunities to the all individuals served by state-funded disability service agencies, agencies providing aging-related services, public assistance benefits and others.   You can go to our website www.DVCPA.org and see the 4 year summary, county by county.

We believe there is evidence that vulnerable people with limited access to voter registration services are not getting voter registration services required by the NVRA.

A Performance Audit could answer whether voter registration services are actually missing in the majority of the state (as the data would suggest), or if they’re happening but not being reported.

Together we can strengthen our community – help us create a loud political voice! Please add your organization to the list of supporters.
