HARRISBURG (AP) – More extreme time pressures could push the bounds of how PA’s elections are run in 2022, with races for U.S. Senate and governor driving voter interest and partisan stalemates in the state House sowing uncertainty. With barely a month before candidates can start gathering signatures to qualify for primary ballots, PA still has no new map of boundaries for congressional and state legislative districts. A court battle looks inevitable, potentially squeezing the timeline for counties to finalize and mail out ballots. Meanwhile, counties remain unable to persuade the state Legislature to let them process mailed-in ballots before Election Day. That hang-up in 2020′s election dragged out counting for days.
