COMING SOON: PETITIONS FOR STATE AND COUNTY OFFICES
Nominating petitions for candidates for PA House and Senate, as well as county and state Democratic Committee positions, are not available to sign yet. Those are on hold until a lawsuit over new maps designating state House and Senate boundaries is settled. Under Pennsylvania’s Constitution, the maps do not become law until the Pennsylvania Supreme Court rules on all appeals filed to the plan. The appeal period for challenges to the final plan expires on March 7, 2022.
