This Tuesday, May 17, is primary election day in Pennsylvania. Voters will have the opportunity to choose their party’s candidates for governor, lieutenant governor, U.S. House and Senate, state House and state Senate (in even-numbered senatorial districts), as well as members of the Republican and Democrat State committees.
Voters who have chosen to vote by mail-in or civilian absentee ballot must have those ballots back to their county Board of Elections no later than 8 p.m. on election day.
This is the first election since state legislative and U.S. congressional district lines were redrawn as a result of population shifts revealed by the 2020 Census. While the process may have changed the district in which you reside, it has no bearing on where you vote. But if you are uncertain of your polling location, you can check it here.
Only voters registered as Republicans or Democrats are eligible to vote for candidates in the primary election. For comprehensive information about the state’s elections, visit vote.pa.gov.
