Maps in Court
The congressional districts approved by the PA Supreme Court remain subject to litigation. No further decisions on the maps have been made by the U.S. Supreme Court or the federal court where the GOP are fighting yet. No deadline has been established for a decision by the courts, though Justice Alito has imposed a deadline of Monday, March 5 at 3:00PM for the parties to submit responses to the GOP’s petition against the PA Supreme Court map. As the court processes continue, the new district lines remain.
Candidates Get on Ballot
Candidates for U.S. Congress have until March 27 to get on the ballot in PA. Democratic and GOP candidates must obtain at least 1,000 registered voters from their party and in their district to get on the ballot. Since candidates did not know their districts until February 19, they are in a race to adapt to the new landscape. The League of Women Voters and Committee of Seventy will have voter guides that provide useful information on the candidates.
