One thing a majority of Americans across the political spectrum can agree on is that misinformation is a huge problem the country is facing, especially in the run up to next month’s midterm elections.

Thankfully, the non-partisan All Voting is Local Pennsylvania, along with their partners from Committee of Seventy and Pitt Cyber, is hosting a series of online conversations starting today and for the following two Wednesdays in order to cut through the noise and present the facts about voting and how elections are run in PA. These discussions will be moderated by the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Jonathan Lai, who will be joined by Committee of Seventy CEO and former Philadelphia Elections Commissioner Al Schmidt, former Mercer County election official Jeff Greenburg, and a special guest each week. 

“We want to make sure that people hear from election officials who are nonpartisan and experts in their field on what actually happens behind the scenes to get votes counted and to collect and tabulate those ballots,” said All Voting is Local PA State Director Nick Pressley.
