Fewer Than 25 Percent Of Venango County’s Registered Voters Went To The Polls On Tuesday

November 8, 2017

In an off-year election consisting of multiple municipal races and balloting for judges for state courts, only 28.4 percent of Venango County’s registered voters went to the polls on Tuesday.

Statewide, the voter ratio was mostly the same.

Locally, the constitutional amendment referendum question regarding the expansion of the homestead exemption to allow for one hundred percent of owner-occupied property to be excluded from taxes was defeated.  But, the question passed across the state with about 54 percent of Pennsylvania’s voters approving the referendum.

Venango County voted strictly Republican in the races to seat judges on Pennsylvania’s three statewide courts, but Democrats Maria McLaughlin, Deborah Kunselman, and Carolyn Nichols emerged as the leading vote-getters statewide, along with Republican Mary Murray, in the balloting for four Superior Court posts.  Superior Court appointee Geoffrey Moulton, who has spent a little more than a year on that bench, finished sixth.

2016 state Supreme Court appointee Sally Mundy defeated Pittsburgh-area judge Dwayne Woodruff for a seat on the highest bench, but not nearly by the margin which had her ahead in this area – getting 52.3 percent of the state’s vote.  Republican Christine Fizzano Cannon and Democrat Ellen Ceisler were the leading vote-getters from among four candidates for Commonwealth Court positions.  All of the state judges who were seeking retention approval received positive nods.
