Looking to make a real, meaningful difference this Election Day (May 21, 2019)? The Philadelphia Bar Association is in need of volunteers to promote its ratings of candidates running for state judicial office and help break the wheel of reliance on ballot position. The Association’s Judicial Commission thoroughly investigates and rates all candidates running for judge in Philadelphia, and needs your help to get its ratings in the hands of voters as they go to the polls. Current ratings can be viewed at https://www.philadelphiabar.org/page/CurrentRatings.
Volunteers are needed to work at polling places across Philadelphia on May 21 from 7-10 am and 5-8 pm. Handing out the ratings at polling places will help to educate voters as to which candidates are highly recommended or recommended by the Commission as they are preparing to cast important votes for judicial vacancies. You can sign up to work either or both shifts at: https://forms.gle/yYWEkMQ5o9WKarza7.
Please note: You do not need to be an attorney to participate in this effort! Encourage your non-attorney friends to volunteer as well! We will be staffing as many polling places across Philadelphia as we can, so we need all the help we can get.
