The Attorney General of the Commonwealth is the top law enforcement official for the state, representing Pennsylvania in all legal matters brought against and by the state. The office is currently divided into four divisions: Criminal Law, Public Protection, Civil and Operations. It’s a broad mandate, and as such they also lead several hundred prosecutors.
As the City Controller is the chief fiscal watchdog of the City, the Auditor General performs that function for the Commonwealth. The office aims to eliminate waste, and ensure state spending is compliant with law. They do this via financial audits on state agencies and dollars, and programmatic audits to ensure state initiatives are meeting goals effectively and efficiently.
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.
