Another Pennsylvania Primary Election and again – voter turnout was very disappointing.
Four years ago, the Chester County voter turnout in the 2009 Primary was 15%. Despite the fact that Independents cannot vote in the PA Primary, these numbers are terrible. (12.6%).
- We MUST and CAN do more to inform, educate and encourage ALL of our eligible citizens to participate in the political process and VOTE. If you have comments and ideas about how we can increase voter turnout, send them in to one of our board members.
- Our goal is to keep the lines of communications OPEN – to and from all of our board members, committee chairs and YOU.
- Local elections affect us directly and the people we vote for determine our future.
We are the League of Women Voters and VOTING is our priority. HELP US FIND SOLUTIONS TO IMPROVE VOTER TURNOUT.
