Write-in candidates for Precinct Delegate Options


*A write-in candidate must file a Declaration of Intent no later than 4:00 P.M. the second Friday before the election. (168.737a as amended under PA 87 of 2006)

*An individual who wishes to seek a Precinct Delegate position as a write-in candidate must file a Precinct Delegate Write-In Candidate Declaration of Intent with the proper filing official of his or her township or city by 4:00 P.M. on the second Friday preceding the primary election. As an alternative, he or she may file the Write-In Candidate Declaration of Intent with his or her precinct board chairperson on the day of the primary election anytime prior to the close of the polls.

Write-in candidates must file a Statement of Organization form by Campaign finance law. They are filed in the County Clerk’s office.

A tense Democratic race heads to Pa

With Clinton's comeback, however, Tuesday became a political Groundhog Day for the Democratic contenders, an outcome that signaled six more weeks of campaigning — or, to be precise, seven more weeks until the April 22 Pennsylvania's primary, the biggest delegate prize left on the horizon...

...An extended calendar could make critical states whose contests were expected to be meaningless because they fell so late in the primary season: Wyoming caucuses on Saturday and the Mississippi primary next Tuesday, followed by a six-week hiatus until the Pennsylvania primary.

The final contest is caucuses on June 7 in Puerto Rico. At stake: 55 delegates.
