2022 Election Calendar
PA Supreme Court Ruling on State Party Committees & Reapportionment (March 16th):
On Wednesday, March 16th, the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court issued multiple orders that directly impact the 2022 Primary Election Calendar. The first order vacated their March 2nd ruling which froze the election calendar (see the paragraph below for specific details), and set dates for the petition process for State Party Committees and seats in the Pennsylvania General Assembly (court order in PDF format). A second order put the force of law into the Final Plan of the Legislative Reapportionment Commission (court order in PDF format), which set legislative districts across the commonwealth. Based on these court orders, an updated 2022 Election Calendar has been published (view the calendar in PDF format, or online).
PA Supreme Court Ruling on Local & State Party Committees (March 2nd):
On Wednesday, March 2nd, the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court issued an order clarifying a previous ruling that froze the 2022 Primary Election Calendar pending the outcome of ongoing litigation and the adjudication of appellate challenges to the Final Plan of the Legislative Reapportionment Commission. That order allowed the local party committees petition process to begin immediately, and set a deadline for petitions of March 15th. Petition packets were made available online the same day as the court order, and print copies were made available in the Bureau of Elections the next morning. That court ruling also placed State Party Committees in alignment with the nomination petition process for seats in the Pennsylvania General Assembly (court order in PDF format).
