VoteSafe Plans a Six-Figure Cable and Digital Spend Behind a New Ad
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 9, 2020
HARRISBURG, Pa. – Today, VoteSafe released a new ad featuring Sue Glovas, a Northampton County resident, a poll worker for the last eight years. Glovas is committed to ensuring Pennsylvania has a safe and secure election this Nov. 3.
In the ad, Glovas said she knows the voting process in Pennsylvania is safe and secure and she promises to “protect your vote just as if it was my own.”
In recent weeks, there has been an abundance of rumors, falsehoods, and myths about mail-in voting and Pennsylvania’s election process.
“Sue is the epitome of what Pennsylvania’s poll workers are,” said former Rep. Patrick Murphy and Under Secretary of the U.S. Army. “Our neighbors, friends, and family members are the individuals that volunteer to work as poll workers. These are dedicated public servants help to guard our democracy. We can and should trust them.”
During the recent June primary, which was pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 2.8 million Pennsylvanians voted. More than 1.4 million of those votes, or 51 percent, were cast through mail-in ballots, making it for the first time in this state’s history that in-person voting was eclipsed by votes received by mail.
VoteSafe Pennsylvania is a bipartisan coalition comprised of community leaders, advocates, nonprofit organizations, current and former elected officials, chambers of commerce, private companies, and election experts who all want the same things—an efficient, accessible, secure mail-in ballot process and safe, in-person voting sites. VoteSafe Pennsylvania is part of VoteSafe, a national, bipartisan coalition chaired by former Secretary of Homeland Security and Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge (R) and former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm (D).
