March 6th is the last day to file petitions for candidates running for county committee and all offices except congress.
Petition circulation for Congressional candidates begins tomorrow, Tuesday, February 27 and lasts through the final filing date of March 20.
SCOTUS refused to grant a stay in the congressional redistricting order handed down by the PA Supreme Court. The legislature is now responsible to create maps and have them to Governor Wolf by this Friday. Governor Wolf has until February 15th to approve a map. If the legislature and governor do not agree on a map, the PA Supreme Court will draw its own maps. Although this is not a power given it by the PA Constitution, it would not be the first time the Court has implemented its own maps.
Without a reprieve from the PA Supreme Court, on February 19th a new congressional map will be in place and apply to the May 15th Primary Election.
