Why Vote in the May 18 Primary?

 
1.  The 2021 Primary is for every voter!   There are several  ballot questions for all registered voters.  You do not have to be registered as a Democrat or Republican to vote on these important questions, which include: 
  • Three proposed amendments to the PA Constitution  (read the League's Analysis of the 3 Constitutional Amendments here.)
  • A statewide referendum on equipment loans for first responder units
  • A county-wide ballot question on the use of solitary confinement at the Allegheny County Jail

2.  In some races, the Primary result is the final result.  This happens when all candidates running for an office are members of the same party, and is true of many municipal races, including the Pittsburgh Mayor's race. 

3.  In local, municipal elections, the results are close to home. 
Mayors, sheriffs, judges, town councils and school boards set your local taxes, and make and enforce decisions that affect your daily life.

 Your Vote is Your Voice!  Vote in the May 18 Primary, and in Every Election!
