The Montgomery County CSP Committee held a “Pledge to Vote” event on October 6, 2022 at the HopeWorx offices featuring Bill England from the Here For Us Advocacy Coalition.
Hopeworx was pleased to welcome England (standing in the 2nd row, far right above) to discuss voter registration and the November 8th election. This is a part of the MontCo Votes Campaign which focuses on educating people about the upcoming election and providing support in registering to vote.
There will also be a robust voter mobilization for the November 8th election.
The discussion at Hopeworx included which offices are up for election, who the candidates are for each office, and voting as an important part of civic engagement. During the discussion questions were asked and answered about voter registration and the election. Time was spent talking about the MontCo Votes Pledge to Vote. All persons who take the pledge are entered into a raffle for a $100 visa card. Anyone may enter by using this link https://pahealth.salsalabs.org/montcovotespledge/index.html.
All who participated in the discussion were offered assistance in registering to vote if they were not and completed the Pledge to Vote. There were many good things said about the importance of voting.
The deadline to register to vote is October 24th. People can vote by mail, using an absentee ballot, or register to vote in person on election day. This is the website to register, check your registration and make any updates, and request an absentee or mail-in ballot www.vote.pa.gov
