5th Square is pleased to announce our 2020 endorsements for PA State House! The primary election is coming up on June 2nd and we are encouraging everyone to maintain social distancing by requesting their mail-in ballot today.
We believe these candidates will best represent our mission to make Philadelphia a more sustainable, accessible, transit-friendly city for everyone. Candidates were chosen based on a membership straw poll and the quality of their questionnaire responses, and 5th Square's membership overwhelmingly voted to approve these endorsements.
📸 Read more about why we chose these candidates in our Press Release.

Any registered PA voter can request a mail-in ballot for any reason: either online (need PA ID) or by mail.
You can also register to vote or update your voting address online.
