Election Information From Pennsylvania GOP  -  April 14, 2016


Good morning State Party Members,


I wanted to take a brief moment and make you all aware of a recent change to the Pennsylvania Primary Ballot in 2016. 


On the April 26th ballot, there was slated to be two ballot questions.  The first of those is a question regarding the mandatory retirement age for judges, and whether or not it should be moved to 75.  That question, after some debate on the way it was worded, has been struck from the Primary ballot and will instead be up for vote this November for the General Election.


You can find more information by clicking HERE.  Please note that the second ballot question, regarding the potential abolition of the Philadelphia Traffic Court, will remain on the ballot for the Primary.
