Go Vote For Some Judges!

GUYS, IT'S ELECTION DAY!
It's not glamorous like that last election, but these low-turnout municipal elections are actually some of the most important, as your vote counts that much more in the final tally. (When we got to our polling place at 3 p.m., only 17 people had voted before us!) So if you're registered to vote in Philadelphia, GO DO IT!
Chances are you probably won't recognize many of the names on the ballot. That's okay! If you don't know your municipal court from your court of common pleas, Penn Leads the Vote has a handy little list of all the candidates and another of where you should vote. If you live off-campus, you can find your polling place here.
The polls are open until 8 p.m., so you still have 4 hours to get your vote on. It's really fun. You even get a sticker that says I Voted!
