Democracy depends on free and fair elections. To have such elections, candidates must be on the ballot. For candidates to be on the ballot, the people must ask for them to be there. In Pennsylvania this is accomplished through candidate petitions: registered members of each party sign petitions asking for individual candidates to be included on the ballot of the Primary election, which will be held on May 21st this year.
An important first step in helping us elect Democratic Candidates in this election cycle is attending a petition signing event and registering your request that Democratic candidates be included on the Primary Ballot.
There are two events coming up where you can do this easily and quickly, while having fun in the process!
