We are knocking on EVERY Democratic door in the township by Oct. 20

Haverford Democrats canvassing Haverford Democrats – that is the grassroots goal: building community strength by doing it for ourselves, ward by ward, precinct by precinct.

  • Volunteer to knock on 30-40 doors over a two-week span, according to your own schedule.
  • You get exercise and you get to talk to Democrats – who smile when they see us GETTING OUT THE VOTE!
  • HTDems Events page gives you the canvassing schedule and contact info you need. Canvass in your ward or a different ward. Your choice.

Prefer to make phone calls to Democrats, encouraging them to VOTE?

  • Email Brianna Cole, our field director, at bcole@padems.com.
  • Brianna is running a phone bank every weekday evening, 5:00-8:00. Let her know when you can put in 3 hours.

Haverford Township Day is Saturday, October 6. Join the parade!

Thanks to all who made the “Raise Our Visibility” fundraiser a huge success.  We can now rent a flat-bed truck and create a Blue Wave float for HTDay parade.

Attend the float-building party on October 5.  We provide the beer & pizza, you provide the labor. Email grassroots@haverforddemocrats.com.

Be part of the wave in the parade!  Put on a blue t-shirt and parade with fellow Democrats. Imagine a wave of blue marching down Eagle Road.  Gather at  10:00 a.m., Manoa Shopping Center parking lot. You won’t be able to miss us!

Registering to Vote? October 9 is the deadline!

You can register online! Tell unregistered friends and family! Get everyone you know registered so they can vote on Nov. 6.

Voting Absentee? October 30 is the 'application' deadline.

Pennsylvania makes voting absentee far more difficult than it is in most other states. Don’t be fooled by the close-to-election due dates. Waiting til the last minute can make your ballot too late to be counted. Follow these steps NOW!


  • Download absentee ballot application
  • Fill out and mail completed application form to: Bureau of Elections, Government Center Building, 201 W. Front Street, Media, PA 19063
  • When filling out the form, you must include street address and township. Your “Election District” means your ward & precinct. If you don’t know, you can leave blank. Or find out on our website!
  • If this is the first time you are voting, you need to send a copy of your driver’s license.
  • Deadline is 5:00 pm Tues, Oct 30, 2018. But don’t wait. APPLY NOW!


  • County Board of Elections will mail you a paper ballot in October.
  • The application allows you to give the address where you will be in October.


  • Mail completed absentee ballot back to the County Board of Elections: Bureau of Elections, Government Center Building, 201 W. Front Street, Media, PA 19063
  • Deadline to return in order to be counted is 5:00 pm Friday, Nov 2, 2018. But don’t wait! RETURN ASAP!
