A MESSAGE FROM PECO:
We have seen an increase in reports of payment scams in your area. These scammers are contacting PECO customers and falsely claiming their electric or gas service will be disconnected unless payment is made immediately. These scammers use tactics such as “spoofing” to manipulate the Caller ID phone number displayed on your phone so that it appears to be a PECO phone number.
PECO will never demand immediate payment, nor will we ever require one specific form of payment, such as a prepaid card or digital currency. Do not pay on-site for services, PECO employees will never ask for or demand cash payments or personal banking information in-person. You should never provide anyone access to your home who claims to be from PECO, or a contractor working for PECO, unless the person has proper identification.
For more information on payment scams and what you can do to keep your information safe, visit peco.com/scams. If you are ever suspicious of a caller claiming to be from PECO, hang up and call us directly at 1-800-494-4000.

Dear voter,

The next election in Pennsylvania is on Tuesday, November 2.

If you would like to vote by mail ballot instead of going to your polling place on November 2, you must apply for a mail ballot by Tuesday, October 26. But do not delay, apply as soon as possible!

Make sure that your voice is heard in the next election! Apply for your mail-in ballot by the deadline!

Remember: registered voters can vote in person at their polling place on Election Day if you choose not to vote by mail. However, if you apply to vote by mail but change your mind, make sure to bring your mail ballot materials to the polls to cast your ballot in person.

Sincerely,

Veronica Degraffenreid
Acting Secretary of the Commonwealth
