Today is Election Day! As of this writing, polls have been open for a little over an hour and will be open until 8pm tonight. Municipal elections often have very low turnout, but this is a very important election with 5 open City Council seats and many other competitive races, including the 1st District which covers Passyunk Square. Make sure you plan 10 minutes in your day to vote.

You can check out a sample ballot, look up your polling place, and get all election-related information from the Committee of Seventy’s website. Please note that if you run into any problems, you can call the Committee of Seventy at 1-866-OUR-VOTE.

Happy voting! Feel free to let us know in the comments that you voted!
