Voter Education Week

Don’t be the #missingvotePHL 

 Are you ready for Election Day on May 19th?

1. Plan ahead of time. Polls open at 7AM and close at 8PM. As long as you are in line by 7:59pm they can not turn you away!


2. Know who you are voting for before you get in the polling booth. Our friends at Crowdpac have made that VERY EASY! You can select all the candidates you wish to vote for AND email or text your slate of candidates to yourself! Click here to create your ballot now.



4. Help us show everyone else how important tomorrow is and encourage them to get to the polls too. Take a photo of yourself with your “I Voted” sticker and use the caption: I’m not the #missingvotePHL

Let’s get out the vote!
IAM is serious about influencing individuals to take actions that will create REAL change. Don’t miss your chance to join the movement. Help empower and educate the 80% of registered voters who don’t vote. In November, Philly had an amazing turnout of just 36% in the gubernatorial race. Mayoral elections typically yield 17 – 25% voter turnout. Click here to read a full stats report.
