Voting Machine Open House. This year, our county will be purchasing new voting machines and they want public opinions first. Voting machine vendors will be on site with machines that have been certified, or are currently in the process of being certified, for use in Pennsylvania. They will hold a public forum to outline the process for replacing our current voting machine system and give our residents an opportunity to offer brief public comment. Following the public comment period, residents will be able to view, test, and provide feedback on the various voting machines on-site. Want a say in how secure and easy your voting process is? Show up.
Next Saturday, 11 am-noon at Norristown Public Library (1001 Powell). Celebrate Black History Month with the uplifting and empowering rhythms of live Gospel and R&B.
