Don’t forget: Election Day is today

In case you’ve somehow forgotten, today is election day.


Whether you’re fully up-to-date on the candidates, or are still figuring out who should get your vote, here are some resources to prepare you to make an educated decision today.

For one thing, we’re voting in a new mayor. Jim Kenney is in the clear lead as the Democratic nominee, but there are still other candidates to be considered.

Besides the seat for mayor, this election includes the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, the City Council at-large, City Council districts, Register of Wills, Sheriff and City Commissioners.

Philly Mag has compiled a “No-Bullshit Philadelphia Election Guide” with resources for each of the candidates. NewsWorks also has an easy-to-use resource with information on each candidate.

Once you know who you’re voting for, the next step is the location. Don’t know where your polling place is? You can find out here.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. today.
