Mayor @billpeduto’s got your back on Election Day

If you need immediate assistance from someone other than the mayor, call the Election Protection Coalition at 866-OUR-VOTE.

Mayor Bill Peduto, an outspoken lover of Twitter, has been tweeting Election Day facts at people who have experienced trouble at the polls this morning.

That includes a tweet from a woman who said a man was directing voters in Lawrenceville to go to another district (you can’t do that), and a woman who was told she needed ID to vote (you don’t, unless it’s your first time voting at a polling place).

Allegheny County is seeing the usual type of Election Day issues, according to a spokesperson. “There has not been anything that has raised any red flags to us at this point.”

If you need immediate assistance from someone other than the mayor, call the Election Protection Coalition at 866-OUR-VOTE.
