In the 2020 election, vote centers beyond Philadelphia included Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, and Allentown. These areas will again play a crucial role in the 2024 election.

Key swing states in the upcoming election will be Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Michigan, Wisconsin, North Carolina and, of course, Pennsylvania. Political analysts believe these states will be decisive in determining the presidential race.

Here are the statewide vote totals from the 2020 presidential race in Pennsylvania: Joe Biden received 3,458,229 votes, while Donald Trump received 3,377,674. Biden secured 50.01% of the vote compared to Trump’s 48.84%.

The final vote count from the November 3, 2020, election in Philadelphia highlights a historic voter turnout, the highest in the city since 1984. Over 749,000 voters cast their ballots in Philadelphia out of 1.1 million registered voters, resulting in a 68% turnout, the highest in decades according to one of the three city commissioners.

The unofficial vote totals in Philadelphia show that President-elect Joe Biden received 604,175 votes, or 81% of the city’s presidential votes, compared to Trump’s 132,870 votes, roughly 18%.

These figures underscore the significance of the Philadelphia vote in 2020. Every candidate, whether national or statewide, must win over Philadelphia if they hope to be elected.

It’s crucial to engage nonprofit organizations, unions, churches, grandparents, individuals with disabilities and others to register a large number of voters. Political campaigns at all levels analyze precincts and their voting strength, which is why we must focus on voter registration and ensure that people get to the polls. This is about building power for the community, which is essential. We cannot allow others to make decisions for us. Many people in your community want to vote but need assistance to do so.

Increasing voter turnout is a true measure of power, and Philadelphia residents are in the driver’s seat. My humble suggestion is to work within the community to increase voter registration by 10-15% per precinct. This grassroots effort will capture the attention of all political parties and candidates. Furthermore, more votes in Philadelphia will lead to increased investment in the community, which benefits everyone.

Communities across America can strengthen their local power bases by boosting voter participation. Grassroots efforts can achieve this and become a strong voice for necessary changes.

Anyone willing can participate in voter registration; you don’t need a college degree. There are many African American and Latino groups that regularly engage in this work, and you can collaborate with them. There is a lot at stake in this election, and Philadelphia can play a vital role in shaping the future.
