PRESS CALL: Voting Rights Leaders to Assess Pennsylvania’s Handling of June 2 Primary

PHILADELPHIA – Leading civil rights organizations will host a telephone press briefing on June 4, 2020 at 2:30 p.m. ET to evaluate Pennsylvania officials’ performance during the primary election this week. The groups will assess how officials executed on the election with two additional months to prepare, including how they informed voters about last-minute changes to polling places and voting by mail amid the COVID-19 pandemic and growing protests which led to reduced public transportation accessibility and militarized police presence. The Pennsylvania primary election was largely seen as a dress rehearsal for the November general election and while these are unprecedented times, Pennsylvania’s elected officials fell short of fulfilling their obligations to voters.
