Philadelphia is distributing 100,000 absentee ballot applications and fliers in food boxes to be distributed by the city, school district, and non-profit groups. The goal is to reach low-income voters who otherwise might not know about vote-by-mail, risking either not voting or voting in person.
The CAPA principal and staff installed signs with the photos and names of their graduating class on the front lawn of the school in Philadelphia on Wednesday, May 13, 2020. Due to the coronavirus, most activities surrounding graduation are being altered to adhere to social distancing guidelines. This initiative was a surprise for the students by the staff, who said the students were handling themselves well throughout the pandemic.
