The Next Election is May 18, 2021

This is a primary election, in which voters vote on specific questions and choose among the candidates from their party for each office.  However, because judicial positions are considered non-partisan, Pennsylvania law allows candidates for judicial office to cross file.  This means that candidates for judge from both parties may appear on a primary ballot, without party identification.  If you want to vote for only those candidates who are members of the same party as you are, you need to know which candidates those are when you vote.  

Although voters who are not registered as Democrats or Republicans cannot vote for candidates for positions in a primary election, they can vote on issues or questions.  See below for the proposed amendments to the Pennsylvania constitution and law.
