We Believe, We Protect, We Vote
Over the past several presidential election cycles Common Cause Pennsylvania has been increasing its election protection programs throughout Pennsylvania to ensure that voting systems are function properly, that no eligible voters are turned away, to prevent voter intimidation and suppression, and record incidents of voting irregularities. With over 9,000 polling places throughout the state, Common Cause Pennsylvania and its allies can serve only a small segment of these polling places and, therefore, based on voter data and historical experience focus on at-risks precincts.
Voters can get assistance with locating their official polling place – verifying they are officially registered – reminding poll workers to check “supplemental poll books” if their name isn’t on the roll – getting help if they improperly turned away from their polling place – obtaining an emergency ballot – securing a provisional ballot – alerting election officials if polls open late or close early, or if voting machines are malfunctioning – and alerting election officials if voter suppression or intimidations activities are occurring.
