Many voters would just as soon turn away from anything to do with politics and elections, given the 2020 election and the angry Republican rhetoric and lies following the defeat of the former president – and then the January 6 insurrection.
And there is also the 2021 state of affairs in Washington and Harrisburg, where Republican legislative followers of #45 would rather nothing gets done. Everyone is looking to 2022 when new legislative districts will be drawn and “mid-term” election battles fought.
BUT – we do have an important election this year to determine whether Chester County will continue to lead the state in employment, median income, health, and (we believe) happiness. Republican politicians – who in the history of the area generally use county offices for party patronage and to build their pensions rather than do the hard work of governing – are lining up to “take back Chester County”. And people with no agenda other than to fight for their freedom to infect others with Covid, or disrupt school board meetings in West Chester and Downingtown over a lie about Critical Race Theory are ready to take over offices with their angry brand of Trumpism – but no desire to keep our communities and schools the best in the state. The fact is – Democrats Deliver!
So we – the East and West Bradford Democrats – ask for you to exercise this fundamental voting right on November 2 (7am-8pm) and vote for the Democratic slate.
But voting by mail is super safe and easy, and you won’t need to worry about the weather or unvaccinated voters in line. Simply sign up at vote.pa.gov. Once you have received, completed, and mailed or turned in your ballot before November 2, you can sit back, feel good about your vote, and easily track the status online.
