Voting begins within two hours across the Commonwealth, allowing voters to express their choices in races followed by the whole country.
Today’s primary ballots include the two major elections for the Governor, the US Senate, and the US Parliament.
Why is today’s vote important?
The state’s US Senate race has a direct national impact, and the Governor’s race will determine the balance of power in Pennsylvania over the next four years.
How can I vote directly?
Voting starts at 7am and ends at 8pm. You can vote as long as you are in line by 8 pm. Some chose to vote by mail. The ballot had to be mailed in time so that it would reach the county officials by 8 pm. Alternatively, you can drop the ballot directly. If you choose it, find out where the county election office is.
Who will vote?
The first ballot will be the US Senate race. Three Republicans, Mahomet Oz, Dave McCormick, and Kathy Barnette, are tied for nominations.
For the Democrats, John Fetterman is still leading the other two candidates, Connor Ram and Malcolm Kenyatta.
Next is the governor’s election, where the Democratic Party has only one candidate, Attorney General Josh Shapiro.
On the Republican ballot, nine candidates will be competing for the ballot nomination.
The winner of Tuesday’s primary will be the ballot for the November general election
