I’m very pleased to announce that yesterday, the City Commissioner’s office rolled up their sleeves and took a major step toward transparency and voter education by agreeing unanimously to publish a Philadelphia Voter Handbook for our upcoming November election!
Since elected I have been advocating for a Philadelphia Voter Guide to help our citizens stay connected. It is important for voters to know when the deadline is for requesting an absentee ballot or to know if their polling location has been changed. It is administrative work that must be done.
Work like this doesn’t just happen – this has taken me three years to pass, but I couldn’t be prouder to be serving our City’s election bureau as we move into the 21st century.
I’ve been producing and distributing such a handbook for three elections now, but now it will be done officially thru the City Commissioners’ office and will be published in both English and Spanish.
I have been fighting for this handbook, and this kind of voter-focused initiative, ever since I took office. Yesterday was a major victory for the voters. Thank you for your support, which makes this progress possible.
Next year, I will be running for re-election and I need your continued support. Please contribute what you can today at www.vote-singer.com. If you are interested in hosting a house party, please email David Ralston at [email protected]
Stephanie was raised to appreciate service to country and community. Her father went to Mississippi in the 1960’s to help Americans register to vote; her mother founded a Saturday science school for inner city children and public school teachers. She continues this legacy by teaching her daughter, who attends public school, the importance of public service.
As a concerned Philadelphia resident, Stephanie fought successfully to increase election transparency and improved access to public information. She had major success making voter information available to all Philadelphians, not just the wealthy. Stephanie is responsible for putting official Philadelphia election results on line for all to see, and for making other election data affordable.
Stephanie does more than have good ideas: she follows through and puts them into practice. She earned a Ph.D. in mathematics, published two books, conducted an election verification exit poll and performed sophisticated data analysis for the 2008 Obama campaign. As the 8th Ward Leader for the Democratic Party, Stephanie led by recruiting
committee people, modernizing communication and broadening the Ward’s mission. Before becoming Ward Leader she volunteered for several Democratic campaigns.
