About Pennsylvania's Election

This year’s General Election on Tuesday, November 8 is an opportunity for Pennsylvania voters to elect multiple state and federal positions for several different term lengths.

  • This will be the first election under the recently approved redistricting boundaries. The updated district lines do not take effect until January 2023, however, the new lines are reflected in the upcoming election.
  • Following the 2020 census, Pennsylvania lost a Congressional seat, leaving 17 members of Congress.
  • Half of the state Senate will stand for election, for a term lasting four years.
