Pennsylvania’s 2022 Redistricting Process is Complete

Congressional Map from Dave’s Redistricting

After months of a very long and confusing redistricting process, the state of Pennsylvania has now approved Congressional, House, and Senate district maps. The interactive maps can be explored at the Pennsylvania Redistricting site and at Redistricting & You: PA.

On Wednesday, March 16th, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania entered an Order stating that the Final Reapportionment Plan filed on February 4, 2022 by the Legislative Reapportionment Commission “shall be used in all forthcoming elections to the General Assembly until the next constitutionally-mandated reapportionment shall be approved.” Although the plan faced many challenges, it is now officially approved as law.

The date of the primary has not changed, but there have been some adjustments to the dates leading up to it. The primary election will be held on May 17th. Candidates now have a shortened timeline to collect signatures to appear on the ballot for the May 17th primary election. Candidates can only collect signatures between Friday, March 18th and Monday, March 28th.

The following is some important information for you to remember for the May 17th primary election: The last day to register to vote is May 2nd, and the last day to request a mail-in or absentee ballot is May 10 by 5 pm. If you are not sure if you are registered to vote, you can check your registration status

If you have any questions about any of the applications, or need support around completing one, please reach out to our Field Program Coordinator Paul Fedore at paul@coalfieldjustice.org or 724-229-3550 Ext. 8.
