This project is the result of Black organizations throughout Pennsylvania working together in a non-partisan coalition to drive a record turnout among Black voters.
Since 2020, we’ve been working to bring more organizations to the coalition and, as a result, get more Black voters registered and to the polls.
This year the coalition, led by the A. Philip Randolph Institute (APRI), is again doing non-partisan voter registration, voter motivation, and voter turnout work in more than eight Pennsylvania counties and would love to continue growing and spreading our message across the state.

Every election is an opportunity for change.
And YOUR VOTE has the potential to solve challenges within YOUR COMMUNITY.
It’s more important than ever to do your research to find out which candidate(s) represent you and your needs most. But before you cast that vote, you have to make sure you can vote.
Check out resources below to make sure you have everything you need to make it to the polls on November 8!
If you’re not registered, you can’t vote. It’s that simple. Find out if you’re registered for this November’s election.
Not registered to vote? Do it now. The deadline for voter registration is 10/24/2022. Get registered for the election before it’s too late.
Depending on your home address, you may have a different polling place than even your neighbors. Don’t trip, just make sure you know where you need to be this November 8.
A. Philip Randolph. Martin Luther King, Jr. Bayard Rustin. John Lewis. They marched for your rights — including the right to vote. Now it’s on you to take the next step. Pledge to vote this November and we’ll send you some free swag to wear to the polls!
Can’t make it to the poll on Election Day? We got you. Secure an absentee ballot and make sure that your vote gets counted during this election.
In most Pennsylvania counties, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO STAND IN LINE at your polling location. A mail-in ballot exists for those who are faced with challenges that make it difficult to make it to the polls.
Don’t trust the mailing system? You can drop it off at your polling place all the way through election day. It’s that easy.
In Pennsylvania, you have two options for mail ballots:
Mail-in ballot – Any registered voter may apply for a mail-in ballot. You may simply request this ballot without a specific reason.
Absentee ballot – If you plan to be out of town or have a disability or illness that prevents you from going to your polling place on election day, this is the ballot for you. However, you must provide a reason for requesting this type of ballot.
During an election, you may only vote for candidates who are running for office in your district. Each district is a geological area that is represented by one or more seats in a legislative body.
Always Remember “You Have the Right to Vote” and we demand a fair and honest election process.
It’s your responsibility to say something if you see something.
Are there obstacles making it difficult for you to vote? Report them to your county’s board of elections or call the voter hotline at 1-877-VOTESPA (1-877-868-3772) for immediate issues.
