PRIMARY ELECTION 2023: Voter’s Guide

The 2023 primary election is fast approaching.

Election day in Tuesday, May 16.

In a primary election, each political party selects its candidates to run for office during the general election. The candidates who get the highest number of votes in the primary election go on to run in the general election. Voters also vote for their party’s officers during a primary election.

In Pennsylvania, you can only vote for the candidates in the same political party you have named in your voter registration. For example, if you registered to vote as a member of the Republican Party then you can vote in the Republican primary, but not the Democratic primary.

According to the Pennsylvania Department of State, there were 198,477 Democrats, 193,144 Republicans, and 78,379 registered to no party or another affiliation in Bucks County as of May 15.
