Philadelphia, May 17, 2010: District Attorney Seth Williams, along with the Honorable Margaret Tartaglione, announced today that they will be watching Tuesday’s Primary Election closely.   Members of the District Attorney’s Office will monitor action at the polls and enforce fair practices to ensure that a fair election is held on Tuesday.

“We encourage all registered voters in the city to get out and exercise the privilege of casting their votes,” said District Attorney Seth Williams.  “That being said, we want to stress that we will go after any criminal activity and prosecute it to the fullest extent of the law.”
