Pro Bono Training: Voter Registration Issues Investigation


There are alarming problems at the Philadelphia Voter Registration Office. The Registration Office lost or incorrectly entered 15% of the forms Penn Law students submitted. Shockingly, an initial investigation revealed that the Office likely lost or incorrectly entered tens of thousands of registration forms from across the city.

We are teaming up with the Committee of the 70 and PA Voice to determine the extent and nature of this problem, in an effort to reform the registration system. We need students to review scans of voter registration forms. Pro Bono hours will be offered and the work can be completed remotely.

The training for this project will take place on Thursday, March 16th from 12-1pm in Silverman 240A. Lunch will be provided. Contact Glen Forster (glenvforster@gmail.com) with any questions.
