PRIMARY ELECTION 2021: Voter’s Guide
The 2021 primary election is fast approaching.
Election day Tuesday, May 18.
In a primary election, each political party selects its candidates to stand in the general elections. The candidates who obtain the greatest number of votes in the primary elections stand for the general elections. Voters also vote for their party leaders in a primary election.
In Pennsylvania, you can only vote for candidates of the same political party that you named in your voter registration. For example, if you registered to vote as a member of the Republican Party, you can vote in the Republican primary, but not the Democratic primary.
All voters can vote on:
- constitutional amendments,
- questions about the ballots, and
- any special electoral contest held at the same time as a primary election.
According to the Pennsylvania State Department, there were 209,256 Democrats, 197,039 Republicans, and 82,170 registered with no party or other affiliation in Bucks County as of May 5.
