Eligibility for Primary Elections

A primary election is an election in which a political party nominates its candidates for an upcoming general election. In Pennsylvania you must be registered and enrolled in a political party to vote in that party's primary.

All registered voters are entitled to vote on Constitutional amendments, ballot questions and in all special elections that might be held at the same time as a primary election.

In 2021, all York County citizens will be eligible to vote in the primary on Pennsylvania constitutional amendments and state referendums, regardless of party affiliation. Those who reside in the 48th Senate District will also be able to cast votes in that race, regardless of party affiliation.
