Election 2023: It’s almost here. Let’s get you ready to vote!

The Brandywine Creek Dems, representing East & West Bradford and East Fallowfield Townships, are preparing for the November 7 election. Here’s what you need to know, and how you can help:

First – do you need to check your voter registration?  And do you anticipate family or business activities may prevent you from voting in-person at the polls on November 7? If so, you can sign up here to receive a mail-in ballot. It’s easy and safe.

Who are we voting for?

In this election, we will elect State Judges, including one critical opening on the PA Supreme Court and Chester County Government officials, including three County Commissioners, District Attorney, Prothonotary, Recorder of Deeds, Register of Wills, and Sheriff. In addition, there are five openings this year for county judges in the Court of Common Pleas.

All are important races, but none moreso than the County Commissioners and judges. Anyone who has attended a County Commissioner or Election Board meeting since 2020 knows that there are many ‘election deniers’ here who would like to make it more difficult to vote; and one could argue they may even refuse to certify a valid vote if controlling the Election Board.

For a full slate of Democrat candidates for these offices, visit the Chester County Democratic Committee Voter Guide.

At the more local level, we are electing school directors for West Chester (East Bradford), Downingtown (West Bradford), and Coatesville (East Fallowfield) Area School Districts. Township supervisors and auditors will also be selected.

Look for us to publish sample ballots soon on this website, and we also plan to mail our annual Brandywine Creek Dems Newsletter, which will include a sample ballot. You can help us cover the cost of printing and mailing by donating here. But we also have an offer that you may prefer – to buy fall plants from Bloombox (September 1-30), with 15% of the price going to our organization to cover this expense.
