Polls opened at 7 a.m. this morning, Tuesday, May 16, 2017, in Pennsylvania, and will remain open until 8 p.m.
Historically, turnout is low on “off years” but local elections matter! Local elections determine not just how your schools are run (or if they are built), not just how your town is run (roads, recycling, police, development, etc.), but who decides on how laws are enforced, and if they are lawful in the first place (e.g. voter laws, gerrymandering, fair use, property rights, drilling rights, even bathroom rights).
Check out posts below, or do your own research on the candidates, but be sure to get out and vote today!
