Still deciding whom to vote for? Still trying to figure out who’s running? Just found out there’s a Philadelphia primary election happening in a month?

Come out to our City Council Candidate Convention on Monday, April 22. Tickets are free but space is limited. Register here.

You can talk to all the candidates running for district and at-large seats (there are more than 50) who will appear on the ballot May 21. The convention will be set up like a reverse job fair/speed-dating opportunity, with the candidates at designated stations, available to speak with any who stop by.

It starts at 5:30 p.m. and goes until 8 at WHYY studios at 150 N. 6th St.

For a primer on who’s running, check out our breakdown of the candidates here.
