What is on the ballot this year in Chester County?
In Pennsylvania, there is a statewide election for the U.S. Senate to elect a successor to current Republican Senator Pat Toomey. This is a massively important election for our commonwealth and the nation–a Democratic victory is crucial.
Chester County’s congressperson, U.S. Representative Chrissy Houlahan, is seeking re-election and depending on our local Democratic committeepeople, volunteers, and voters to continue her work fighting for our values in Washington.
Pennsylvania will also elect a new governor to succeed Democratic Governor Tom Wolf, as well as a lieutenant governor. Both offices are being actively targeted by Republicans, and early voter mobilization is essential to combat misinformation and elect strong Democratic candidates.
Locally, in our hometowns of Downingtown, Caln, and East Caln, there are smaller but just as influential seats up for election in the Court of Common Pleas, school boards, and other municipal offices tasked with making decisions that affect our everyday lives.
