November 3 marks the next Pennsylvania election;  when the positions of county executive, state senators, Supreme Court judges, county controller, county treasurer, district attorney and, in some districts, county council, city council, magistrates’ district judges and school board directors will be solidified.
But the 2016 presidential campaign has over shadowing the local election. Either way, women are expected to play a major role in who gets elected on all levels.
As a way to discover the opinions of Black women concerning the upcoming 2016 presidential election, a Power of the Sister Vote Poll has been conducted by ESSENCE and the Black Women’s Roundtable (BWR) to assess Black women’s priority issues for the election and to understand their motivation for voting.
