  • Primary election day - what you need to know

May 15, the day campaigns have had circled on their calendars for months, is finally here. Anthony, a transgender woman who owns a pair of businesses in Spokane, said she wants to bring fiscal responsibility to the county. The victor of today's primary will face incumbent U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly, who is unopposed for the Republican nomination. The two county school board races appear on city ballots, although city residents are ineligible to vote on those positions. If you're registered as an Independent, you are able to vote on some ballot initiatives.

Topping the GOP and Democratic tickets statewide are the governor, lieutenant governor and US senate races. Per the U.S. Constitution, all the seats for the U.S. House of Representatives are up this year. Democrats are also looking for Conor Lamb (who won a special election earlier this year in a different district) to take down Rep. Keith Rothfus in the 17th District, which Trump won by a little less than 3 points.

A redrawn congressional map, a string of Republican retirements and opposition to President Donald Trump have opened the door for Democrats to pick up as many as half a dozen seats in Pennsylvania.

In the 14th, the Democrats are Bibiana Boerio, Adam Sedlock, Bob Solomon and Tom Prigg.

In the 18th district, Democratic Congressman Mike Doyle is being challenged by fellow Democrat Janis Brooks. Their choices for governor are Scott R. Wagner of York County, Paul Mango and Laura Ellsworth, both of Allegheny County.

Signs also have been posted regarding an error on some local Republican ballots, and Elections Board members firmed up plans Monday for dealing with it. Pennsylvania is one of 10 states with Democratic senators that have Senate elections in 2018.

He proposed political newcomer Quim Torra as his successor, urging the next regional executive to build an independent country. Catalonia has been in political limbo since December past year when pro-independence parties won early elections.

21,929 (55.9% of the requesting population) have asked for Democrat ballots and 14,864 (37.9% of the requesting population) have asked for Republican ballots.

You can also look at sample ballots.

There is a change-up, though, in the congressional races where new district boundary lines have been drawn as a result of a court ruling.
