Over 20,000 unprocessed voter registration applications

With eight days left until election, there are still 23,000 unprocessed voter registration applications in Philadelphia. While the City Commissioners Office was supposed to have finished processing the applications October 29, they have moved that back to November 3, two days before voters hit the polls.

City Commissioners Chairwoman Stephanie Singer told CityPaper that a combined issue of the massive amount of electronic applications from the state Department of Transportation and slow computer servers caused the delay. She also told that that the Office hired extra workers to speed up the process and extended the deadline for correcting incomplete voter registration applications to Nov. 2.
