PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Voters in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware will join fellow Americans across the country for the 2022 midterm elections on November 8th.
As the election looms, it’s a whole court press to make sure things run smoothly on Tuesday.
A hotline has been activated in Philadelphia for people to report any problems they see in the elections.
You can call 215-686-VOTE.
District Attorney Larry Krasner, Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw, Philadelphia City Commissioners and others gathered at Independence Mall on Monday.
They want people to know that they are working with federal partners to ensure there is no intimidation in the election and that any issues are dealt with quickly.
Krasner said any election after the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol must be treated as if there was a threat.
They are asking people who see anything strange at polling stations to call their hotline.
They also assured poll workers that they are safe and urged everyone to exercise their rights tomorrow.
“Your votes will be protected now, on Election Day, as they are being counted, and every poll worker in the Philadelphia County will be protected. This will be a free, fair and final election,” Krasner said.
“All of our patrol districts will have roving teams of police officers dedicated to calling for help at poling locations,” Outlaw said.
“I’ll be damned if democracy dies under my watch. It is safe for everyone to vote. It’s safe to be a poll worker. It’s safe to count the votes. You have my personal assurance,” said Commissioner Omar Sabir.
The DA also asked for patience when counting the votes. They can’t start counting the ballots until Tuesday and fully expect delays.
They would also not go into details about specific threats.
