Clearfield and Jefferson County, PA – Although it’s an off-year election with smaller races, it’s still important to vote today!

Pennsylvanian voters will make choices on the state’s appeals courts, consider a change to possible property tax laws, and decide races for mayors, school board members, and other local government positions.

The biggest statewide race is for the state Supreme Court, where an appointed justice, Republican Sallie Mundy, wants to keep her seat for a full 10-year term. Her opponent, Allegheny County Judge Dwayne Woodruff, is a former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive star who currently handles family court matters.

In other court races, voters will be asked to choose two candidates for the Commonwealth Court and four candidates for the Superior Court. Depending on your municipality, you will likely also be also to make a decision about your mayor and school board members.

All Pennsylvanian voters will be asked to vote yes or no on the Homestead Exclusion Amendment. It’s an amendment that wouldn’t by itself eliminate property taxes but would allow the House of Representatives to allow counties, municipalities and school boards to decide to not tax property in favor of using other taxes instead.

You can see a sample ballot and compare candidates’ stances on major issues by visiting Vote411.org and typing in your address.

Although Vote411.org does have extensive information about most of the statewide races, it does not have information on your mayor or school board elections.

To see who is on your ballot in Clearfield County, choose your district from the courthouse’s I-Vo screenshots.
