PENNSYLVANIA (WHTM) – The Pennsylvania general election is on November 8, 2022, and will include the Pennsylvania U.S. Senate race and Pennsylvania Governor race.
According to the Pennsylvania Department of State, the polls in Pennsylvania are open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. barring unforeseen court rulings to extend poll times.
Voters can check their polling places for the Pennsylvania General Election on the Department of State website.
Voters who submitted a vote by mail ballot are not eligible to vote at their polling place. Voters can check if their vote has been received by their county board of election. Ballots must be returned to the board of election by 8 p.m. on Election Day.
Ballots must also be properly dated, or else they may not be counted. If you recently received or have not yet returned your ballot, the Department of State recommends returning your ballot in person.
Tuesday night abc27 will have results from the Pennsylvania U.S. Senate race results and Pennsylvania Governor race, as well as your local congressional and state legislature races.
The Pennsylvania U.S. Senate ballot includes Republican Mehmet Oz, Democrat John Fetterman, Green Party’s Richard Weiss, Libertarian Erik Gerhardt, and Keystone Party’s Daniel Wassmer.
Polls in the Senate race have shown vote tightening after summer polls showed Fetterman up double digits. Following abc27’s exclusive U.S. Senate debate on October 25 in Harrisburg, Oz began to surpass Fetterman in multiple polls.
The ballot for the Governor’s race includes Democrat Josh Shapiro, Republican Doug Mastriano, Libertarian Matthew Hackenburg, Green Party’s Christina PK Digiulio, and Keystone Party’s Joseph Soloski.
Shapiro has led Mastriano by as many as double digits in multiple polls leading into the November election. A November abc27/Emerson College/The Hill poll showed Shapiro with a nine point lead.
If elected, Shapiro’s running mate Austin Davis would be Pennsylvania’s first Lieutenant Governor of color. Republican Lieutenant Governor candidate Carrie DelRosso and Keystone Party’s Nicole Shultz would be Pennsylvania’s first female Lieutenant Governor.
abc27 is also tracking several congressional and state legislature races during the Pennsylvania primary election, including the 9th, 10th, and 11th U.S. congressional races.
