FIRST TRANCHE OF CONFIRMED POLLING PLACES
election continues to be like no other, but one aspect of voting which
will look slightly more normal in November is in-person voting,
specifically polling place locations.
the Primary in June, Election Day in November will not be impacted by
substantial polling location closures or relocations, as the
Commissioners have committed to opening at least 800 polling places.
That doesn’t necessarily mean every polling place will be back though,
as many were located in places like senior housing facilities that now
can’t be used as a result of the pandemic.
officials have been working all summer to confirm this year’s
locations, and yesterday they released the first tranche of confirmed
facilities, which you can view here.
Look up your voting division on the Commissioners’ Philadelphia Votes website, and then check the list
to see where you’ll be voting. If you don’t see your voting division on
there yet, it’s not time to panic yet. All locations will be finalized
at least 20 days before Election Day.
POLLING LOCATIONS IN OUR AREA (30th Ward):
Marian Anderson Recreation Center (DIV 6)
Chester Arthur School (DIV 14 & 15)
SOSNA BOARD ELECTIONS

abilities and genders. All nomination applications are very welcome.

SOSNA COMMUNITY SPACE - SURVEY
exploring turning our new SOSNA space into a cooperative workspace
containing technology and resources to develop creative digital content.
In doing so we hope to create a community hub for individuals to work
remotely, facilitate learning pods, and share skills or solutions
through developing creative digital content in order to develop rapport
in person or virtually, share solutions through digital content, and
ultimately establish a more cohesive community.
Learn more about the idea created by our Board Member, Brandon Washington here.
