Phila. election information goes online [Philadelphia Inquirer] “Al Schmidt, one of the three officials who run Philadelphia elections, remembers calling up the Election Office soon after he moved here in 2005. He wanted to know the number of voters registered citywide. “I’d seen something on the news and just wanted to find out how many voters there were,” Schmidt said. “I found a phone number on the Internet and called up, asked the question. The first response was, ‘Are you Democrat or Republican?’ And after that it was, ‘Why did I want to know?'”” Find our coverage of the city’s election date site here.
