The Passyunk Square Civic Association By-laws state:

At the general membership meeting held in May of an election year, a simple majority of Members present and eligible to vote shall vote and determine any election. No votes by Members may be issued by proxy or absentee ballot.

This year the election will be held on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 from 6:30pm until 7:30pm in the meeting space at South Philadelphia Older Adult Center (SPOAC), 1430 E. Passyunk Ave. Voting will end PROMPTLY at 7:30pm. No one who has not already come through door by time will be allowed to vote.
