Can anyone tell me where to register to vote?

Thanks for the info Howard, all voters please note that May 21 is a primary election, meaning registered Republicans may only choose among Republican candidates, and Democrats vote on the Democratic ballot.
As Charlie said, anyone may write in any name on the ballot of their party.
In November we all choose among all candidates who got enough votes in the primary

John:  Richard Snyder,  the current tax collector has placed his name on the

ballot and will appear in the May 21st primary in Ridley Park.  He is the Republican candidate

for that office, no one filed from the Democratic Party for tax collector. Snyder will be unopposed

in the primary as no other Republican has filed for that position.  If no Democratic candidate conducts a  write in on May 21st (ten voters need to write in for a specific person on election day to  place a name on the November ballot) Richard will be elected in November for another term. Richard Snyder is a very well qualified man and in my opinion serves well in that position.  That being said,  everyone has the right to run for public office and bring their name to the voters.

Anyone running for tax collector?

Thanks to Howard for getting this information out. Let's hope all the candidates open up dialogues on their ideas with Ridley Park residents through RPOL as well as face to face

Thanks Charlie and Jared:   I added both Daniels to the Democratic ticket and corrected Jared's name.  I knew the right spelling, it was my finger's that didn't.  Just goes to show that it takes a community to raise a Borough.  Thanks for the correction and addditions.

Howard, you've made me a German (Brenen).  Larry would be happy, but I'm Irish - BRENNAN
