By engaging with county and city election officials, we are committed to ensuring all Pennsylvanians have the freedom to vote. State lawmakers want to put up deliberate barriers to the ballot and are even trying to use invasive subpoenas to attack voters. We won’t stop demanding leaders to respect our right to vote.
