Elk County results (click on unofficial media report)
All results are pending official and final tabulation. No write-in ballots have been calculated yet.
Polls will be open until 8 p.m.
These are the primaries, which determine who will be representing your party during the November general elections.
In addition to the presidential party nominations and the state-level seats, there are also two large seats up for grabs in our area:
- the 75th District House of Representatives seat serving Clearfield and Elk Counties, currently held by Rep. Matt Gabler who will be stepping away from the position
- the 25th District State Senate seat, which spans throughout our area and to the north, currently held by Senator Joe Scarnati who is retiring
Three people ran on the Republican ticket for both of those… Cris Dush, Herm Suplizio, and Jim Brown for the Senate seat and Mike Armanini, Lisa Labrasca Becker, and Michael Clement for the House of Representatives. There is only one person running on the Democratic ticket for those seats.
Because of the large number of mail-in ballots this year, the unofficial elections results will not be announced Tuesday night as usual. It will probably take them longer to tally these mail-in ballots, especially since it is the first time that mail-ins have been allowed in Pennsylvania.
