US Senate

National elections take place every even-numbered year. Every four years the president, vice president, one third of the Senate, and the entire House are up for election (on-year elections). On even-numbered years when there isn't a presidential election, one third of the Senate and the whole House are included in the election (off-year elections).

There are no Senators being elected in Pennsylvania this year.

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.
