This Voters Guide may be taken into the voting booth.
Each candidate’s reply has been printed as submitted, except to use standard abbreviations and by editing from the bottom when a candidate’s reply exceeded the word limit. The candidates listed are those whose names appear on the ballot as of Sept. 14. They are listed according to their ballot order. Additional information about judicial candidates and voter information including “Polling Place Lookup” can be found by going to www.vote411.org and typing in your address and ZIP code.
An emergency application and ballot can be obtained and voted by 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 30.
Any disabled voter having questions regarding the accessibility of a polling place should consult the county Board of Elections.
The problem could be resolved by phone if your name appears on the county records. If it does not and you want to try to resolve the problem, then you can go in person to the county Board of Elections where a judge from the Court of Common Pleas will be on duty to resolve election problems.
Alternatively, you can ask for and vote by provisional ballot. If it is later determined that you were eligible to vote, your ballot will be counted. You will be given instructions on how to determine if your vote was counted.
Judicial elections occur in odd-numbered years. Justices and judges may serve an unlimited number of terms until they reach the mandatory retirement age of 70. At the end of a term, a judge can be retained (or not) by the voters. Vacancies that exist before an election may be filed by gubernatorial appointment until an election is held.
