Happy Election Day!

Early voting numbers are up across the country, and anecdotally, in Philadelphia, voters are reporting on social media that polling place lines are longer than usual.

Inspired by the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance’s (GPCA) social media campaign, here are a few folks who work in the local nonprofit/philanthropy/social enterprise/government space and have already turned out to vote today.

GPCA’s audience services manager, Christine Dancey, gave this awesome reason for voting.

Friends Select School showed off its pride in some first-time voters.

The GREEN Program founder and CEO Melissa Lee announced that voting is the new black.

Former Science Center CEO Stephen Tang arrived at the polls early …

… and former Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia Director of Civic Affairs Kate Hagedorn documented a long line.

Mayor Jim Kenney, of course, shouted out Philly voter services.

The Need in Deed staff practiced democracy en masse.

Red Paw Emergency Relief Team founder Jen Leary highlighted a client’s efforts to vote.

The City of Philadelphia’s assistant director of innovation strategy, Eliza Pollack, voted for two.

Witty Gritty founder Michelle Freeman (who wrote about giving her employees off to volunteer at the polls two years ago) made a lil’ voting gif.

Philanthropy Network Greater Philadelphia Executive Director Sidney Hargro recalled the struggles of the civil rights movement.

And this, just because we like it:
