Reminder: Register to Vote on 9/26 at LRI

Liberty will be registering people to vote on 9/26!
We’re committed to strengthening our community by getting voters registered for National Voter Registration Day.

We will also be able to look up polling places to see if they are accessible, and if not, locate the nearest accessible polling place. We will also have a mock voting booth for voting ‘practice.’ Please spread the word to all consumers.

National Voter Registration Day
Wade Blank Room A
10AM-3PM

When you need to register or update your voter registration:
• When you’ll be 18 on or before Election Day
• When you’re a newly naturalized citizen
• When you move, even if just across town
• When you change your name
• When you haven’t voted in a while, in which case your registration may have been removed due to inactivity even though you’re still at the same address

SEPTA Gray card

The Gray Attendant Card is Not a Mandatory Card! It’s just an option for consumers who have attendants that accompany them on outings and have to presently pay a fare. If the consumer has the Gray Card the attendant would ride for free.
