Governor Wolf Announces Plans for Special Congressional Elections
May 02, 2018
Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today announced he will schedule the upcoming congressional special election to replace retiring Congressman Pat Meehan to be held in conjunction with the general election on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.
“Given the calendar and timing of these announcements, it makes the most fiscal and practical sense for our county elections office to schedule these special elections on the same day as the November general election,” Governor Wolf said.
Governor Wolf plans to handle any upcoming congressional retirements in the same manner unless they occur within 60 days of the general election.
