Cortés announced today that 100,000 more new applicants used the state’s online voter registration (OVR) than applied with the traditional paper form in 2016.“OVR has made registration convenient, accurate and secure,” Governor Wolf said. “It just made sense that online registration should be the first step as we began our work to bring about much needed election reforms.”Secretary Cortés added that OVR is a hit with the public, attracting 5,000 users in its first week and more than 950,000 since its launch in August 2015.“Encouraging voter participation is one of the most important things I do as secretary of the commonwealth,” Secretary Cortés said. “With more than 858,000 users in 2016 alone, it is clear that Pennsylvania citizens recognize and welcome the ease of OVR.”The 2016 annual voter registration report (PDF) shows there were 8,646,238 registered voters as of Dec. 31, 2016, compared to 8,098,304 at the end of 2015.Secretary Cortés also commended the election offices in Pennsylvania’s 67 counties for their efforts to process voter registration applications, both electronic and paper.“It was a very busy year for election workers in every county,” he said. “They put forth great effort and successfully handled the challenge that comes with every presidential election.”The annual report, in addition to county and party breakdowns, also provides details of voter list maintenance activities during 2016 and outlines the department’s collaboration with other commonwealth agencies designated under the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA).last_img read more

Rashford steps up rehabilitation exercise

first_img Loading… Marcus Rashford has been cleared to step up his rehabilitation programme following encouraging signs on his latest scans. His progress will continue to be monitored by the club’s medical team throughout the current lockdown period. Rashford held informal talks with the agency’s representatives in Miami last weekend The Academy graduate and this season’s top scorer so far has not played since 15 January, due to a serious back injury he sustained in the Emirates FA Cup victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers. Rashford had been working hard on his rehabilitation with medical staff at the Aon Training Complex, before the coronavirus pandemic forced all of the Reds to work individually at home. However, as Marcus explained in an interview with Sky Sports at the weekend, his progress has not been affected and the 22-year-old was happy to report he is growing stronger. “I feel much better,” said Rashford, who had scored 19 goals from 31 appearances before his injury. “Definitely, comparing it to two or three weeks ago, I feel 10 times better. “For me now, it is just about getting ready to build it back up to training and playing the games with the team. I am in a much better place. I am much happier now than I was about a month ago, so things are looking positive.” With all matches postponed until at least 30 April, in light of the COVID-19 outbreak, United’s players are all training away from club facilities with guidance from the coaching staff. Rashford is taking the unprecedented situation in his stride and, due to his injury, admits nothing much has changed for him on a personal level. “Everyone’s just dealing with the circumstances as well as they can,” said Marcus over the weekend. “I have just been in my house, doing my recovery work, reading books, watching Netflix and just whatever you can do to make the time pass. “There is not really anything that comes close to that feeling of being in the changing room, in the team, in my opinion, so to be honest I am not trying to chase that high. “I had to have time off anyway and relax because of my injury. I am fortunate enough to have a bike in the gym downstairs so not much in that sense has actually changed for me, because I can still do the daily routine that I was doing.” When Rashford is not working on his rehabilitation, the homegrown hero has been helping those who are less fortunate by raising £100,000 for a charity called Fare Share, specifically to get food to children who usually rely on free school meals. “I didn’t know how high the numbers were for kids who weren’t eating at home, other than school meals,” explained Marcus. “That number kind of shocked me and I remember speaking to one of my friends, who was saying there was an opportunity where we can help these people.

We pretty much had the idea and they allowed us to make it work, so we thought ‘let’s try to get to £100,000’. That would allow us to feed 400,000 kids so it has a massive impact.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Promoted ContentPlaying Games For Hours Can Do This To Your BodyFascinating Ceilings From Different Countries6 Incredibly Strange Facts About Hurricanes7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterEver Thought Of Sleeping Next To Celebs?
