Every Vote Counts
Next Tuesday, May 15, is primary election day in Pennsylvania, and voters will find several races that are wide open – especially in the congressional mid-term elections, where voting districts look much different. That's because they were redrawn by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court earlier this year to eliminate the gerrymandered map approved by state legislators in 2012. The vacancies have spurred crowded fields in a few districts as candidates try to take advantage of the upheaval.
When the polls close, we'll know who will challenge incumbent U.S. Senator Bob Casey and incumbent Governor Tom Wolf in November.
Here's a rundown of what to expect – see newsletter for information on the following Pennsylvania primary contests for:
- U.S. Senate
- U.S. House
- Lieutenant Governor
Sample ballots, information on polling places, and a link to check voter registration status are also included in the newsletter.
