In honor of National Voter Registration Day, we’re giving you all the information you need on how and where to register to vote
If you haven’t yet registered to vote, get it off your to-do list now. Today is National Voter Registration Day, and thousands of local, state and national organizations have mobilized to make sure millions of people don’t miss the chance to cast their vote in this year’s elections. Six million people didn’t vote in the 2008 elections because they either did not know how to register or because they missed the voter registration deadline. The voter registration deadline for Pennsylvania is Oct. 9. In Montgomery County, all voter registration forms must be received 30 days prior to the election. You cannot register online or fax in a registration, as an original signature is warranted by the county. Here’s information on how you can register…

Do you know who you're voting for? Do you know where to go to vote? Check out our little guide for more
Tomorrow is the Primary Election in the United States. There are no municipal elections on the ballot. However, this is the time to get your Primary vote in for U.S. President, U.S. Senator, Attorney General, Congressional representatives, General Assembly representatives and senators. Rep. Bob Godshall, R-53, has no competition in the Primary. Those who face no competition within their own political party will face their challenger in the November General Election. For those with competition within their party for one nomination, such as Kathleen Kane and Patrick Murphy in the Democratic nomination for Pennsylvania Attorney General, the one with the most votes wins and faces the opposing party's challenger in November. According to …

It was revealed at Tuesday's Lansdale town hall meeting that PennDOT rejected a banner promoting voting to be hung over East Main Street
Who knew the word “Vote” had so much political clout? At the council work session this month, resident Jean Fritz requested council adopt a banner that says “Vote on Tuesday.” “It’s not political, it’s not intended to be political, it doesn’t say ‘Vote Republican’ or ‘Vote Democrat.’ The banner needs a sponsor,” said Fritz. “I would hope council would take some consideration into taking the banner, adopting it and hanging it up during elections.” She said the banner would be a "reminder" for people to vote in Lansdale, citing how 30 percent of residents voted in 2011 and 43 percent voted in 2010. A suggested idea was to hang the banner at the only place in Lansdale where a banner can be hung – over East Main Street near Line Street, where …

The first of a two-part series that briefly profiles each of the county-level candidates in the November 8 election.
Hey, did you know there's an election coming up? No, we don't mean the 2012 presidential election, though from the general media buzz, one could hardly be blamed for thinking that's the next election that matters. Surprise: we've got elections this year, too. With many of Montgomery County's most important jobs on the ballot, one could argue that the decisions made on Nov. 8 will affect your life more directly than anything that happens at the polls in 2012. Recent history suggests that somewhere around 75 percent of registered voters won't bother to turn out to the polls in two weeks. At Patch, we're hoping to nudge you to get a little more involved than that. Last week, we reviewed the county offices on the ballot in a two-part series. …

The Democratic candidate for Ward 3 in Lansdale faces off Tuesday against Leon Angelichio.
In the primary election on May 17th, Democrats in Lansdale's 3rd Ward have a choice between two candidates. My name is Denton D. Burnell, and I am one of those candidates. Like my opponent, I am a family man. My wife Mary and I have two children—one who attends third grade at York Avenue, and one in kindergarten at Lansdale Montessori, where my wife also teaches. I am a director of technology for a national online brokerage firm who is lucky to spend much of his time working from home. Immediately upon moving into our Delaware Avenue home in 2005, we fell in love with the sense of community we discovered, and feel strongly that we have found our permanent home here. We are at an important crossroads here in Lansdale. Much forward progress …
Democrat Angelichio is running for Ward 3-2 on Lansdale Borough Council.
I am writing this letter today to introduce myself to the people of Lansdale. I have read, and continue to read, the opinions of those who write into and comment on items in the Sound Off section of our local paper, The North Penn Reporter, and I would like people to hear from me, the candidate, about me. My name is Leon Angelichio, and I need your vote on May 17. I am married to a wonderful lady, parent of two children, a local contractor, and concerned Lansdale resident and taxpayer. My children attend the North Penn school district. My son, Anthony, is a senior at the high school. He is soon to graduate and will be attending U.S. Army basic training and Combat Engineer MOS training through the summer and fall at Fort Leonard Wood in …

There were more than 100 entries into this year's Members' Exhibition
If you have visited Elm Terrace in the past three days, it would have been hard to not notice the photographs, paintings and other artistic works littering the rooms and hallways of the building. In its 17th year, the North Penn Arts Alliance's Members' Exhibition put on quite a display of creativity and ingenuity. There were water color paintings, oil paintings, magnificent photography and even some well designed pottery available for viewing. The NPAA Members' Exhibit runs concurrently with the Elm Terrace Garden's flower show. Thursday was the opening of the exhibition, with Friday adding in the artists' reception and award ceremony. By Saturday, the NPAA was still in the process of selling certain pieces. They were also preparing for…
