Generocity is one of 21 news organizations producing Broke in Philly, a collaborative reporting project on solutions to poverty and the city’s push toward economic justice.
Pennsylvania is voting for a governor, lieutenant governor, one senator and more on Tuesday, Nov. 6.
The last day to register before this election is Tuesday, Oct. 9. That’s today.
As of the 2016 presidential election, there were about 2.3 million people in the state who were eligible to vote and didn’t even register.
“We’re gonna learn how to get more involved in this voting process so that you can take some power back over your community and over your country,” Dixon says over the sounds of a Fishtown voter registration drive, “and it all starts here by getting signed up, learning how to use the machine and use the process.”
And then, obviously, register to vote. Here are a few reasons why.
