Primary season begins next week!

Republican and Democratic candidates can begin circulating their nomination petitions for the May 18 primary on Tuesday, Feb. 16. This is person-to-person politics and it hasn’t been altered in the face of COVID, so it’ll be interesting to see if candidates will have more problems than usual collecting enough valid signatures. For most judicial seats statewide and all Philadelphia citywide offices it’s 1000 signatures; countywide candidates in the suburbs will need 250. Philly voters will choose their DA and Controller, and there’s an array of county and municipal offices up for grabs in Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomerycounties. You’ll soon be able to build your own ballot on C70’s ballot tool, and complete information on all the offices and ballot questions will be posted on our 2021 Election Guide.
