PA State Senate
The PA Senate is the upper house of Pennsylvania’s legislative body, and the final stop for bills created in the house. Like the US Senate, it is smaller than the lower house. Unlike the US Senate, which gives each State two seats evenly, State Senators all represent proportional districts.
The primary is Tuesday, June 2, having been postponed from the original April date because of the coronavirus. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
This year, though, voters can skip the long lines at the polls by applying for a mail-in ballot.
