Election Day Features Judicial Choices, A Constitutional Amendment Question, Few Local Races

November 7, 2017
By

Although there are a few local races, Tuesday’s election ballots in Pennsylvania will mostly spotlight judicial races and one important Constitutional amendment referendum question.

The referendum asks if you approve of expanding the homestead exemption to allow for one hundred percent of owner-occupied property to be excluded from taxes.

There appears, though, to be no consensus at the state level as to a replacement source of revenue.  It may need to come from increased income or sales taxes.  State Senator Ryan Aument told Radio PA News it may result in the reformulation of the tax system by state lawmakers.

In balloting for the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, one race is being contested and two retention votes are being taken.  There are four seats up for election and one retention vote for another seat on Superior Court, and two judges will be elected to Commonwealth Court.

Local races will include posts for municipal offices, as well as on the county level and competitions for school board seats.

Polls open Tuesday (Nov. 7) at 7:00 AM, and will close at 8:00 PM.  Live election return coverage will begin on 96.3 KQW on Tuesday night following the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey broadcast.
