The video takes the learner through the voting process step by step.   The narrator’s pleasant voice describes each of the steps very clearly and at a moderate pace from the point of entering the polling place and receiving the new blank paper ballot.   

The last day to register for the primary election is April 13, 2020.  A handy online guide to determine whether a resident is eligible to register is found at:

Our public libraries have computer stations which can be used to access these online voting services – which are provided by Philadelphia’s Office of City Commissioners.
