MAY 21, 2019 PRIMARY ELECTION
COURT OF COMMON PLEAS
Pennsylvania will have a primary election on May 21, 2019 to determine who will represent the Democratic Party in the November election. As you will read below, in Pennsylvania, candidates from one party are able to "cross file" and be listed as a candidate of the other party. In the Primary Election Republican candidates are able to run as a Democrat and unless you know who the "true" Democrat is on the ballot a Republican may become a candidate in November. All because of the votes of unaware Democrats. The ballot locations are already set. The Delaware county Democratic slate of candidates will be on the Primary Election ballot in positions: A10, A11, A13 AND A14 ONLY.
CROSS-FILING IN PA ELECTIONS
As 2019 begins we need to give some thought to the May Primary and November General Elections.
An issue that we will face in this primary will be candidates who CROSS-FILE. In Pennsylvania, judiciary and school board candidates are permitted to cross-file because those positions have been thought of as non-partisan. However, in today’s climate critical decisions are made by individuals who see themselves as partisans. It therefore is important for us to become informed about what cross-filing is, why it happens and what can we do about it. The YouTube video below was created by Larry DeMarco for the Delaware County Political News. It will explain the details of cross-filing. Sari Daisey, a 2017 candidate for Garnet Valley School Board, was interviewed for the video and she talks about her experience with cross-filing in that election.
