How to Run for Neighborhood Office and Win

January 18, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Note: This event is open to all political affiliations!

In the Spring of 2017 and 2018, Philadelphia’s 1,686 voting precincts will collectively ELECT 5,058 Election Board Officials and 3,372 Committee People from each major party – that’s nearly 12,000 open seats!

Election Board Officials are in charge of polling places and Committee People are Party Officials tasked with ensuring that people in their neighborhood show up to vote in force. It’s time to get involved.

This isn’t just another panel that encourages you to run; we’re going to help you understand legal and technical processes, give you specific information about your voting division, help with campaign literature, and provide follow-up support and guidance to those who want it.
