Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-March 4, 2020-The Philly Cannons of the American Basketball Association (ABA) have partnered with the City Commissioners Office to provide instruction on using the new Voting Machines that will be utilized during the upcoming election next month. An actual machine will be present at the game for residents to practice casting their ballots. Additionally, area residents will be able to register to vote, and receive information on key dates pertaining to the 2020 election at the March 7th home finale versus the nationally ranked Ephrata Thunder. Free admission is being offered between 12 Noon and 12:30 PM with tip-off scheduled for 1:00 PM. The game will take place at the Lucien E.
