Pennsylvania has become another in a series of states whose legislators have voted to delay their states’ primary election because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The state’s primary election, originally slated for April 28, will now be on June 2. 

The move passed in the House and Senate on Wednesday and all indications are that Gov. Wolf will sign it. 

Voters in the Corry area will have no local races to consider in the primary election, but will have a few more races for the general election.

The deadline for those seeking office to file their petitions was Feb. 18.

The general election is Nov. 3. The polls on both days will be open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly, R-16, does not have an opponent in the primary election, but is assured a Democratic opponent in the general election as Kristy Gnibus has thrown her hat in the ring.

The 16th District covers all of Erie County, Crawford County, Mercer County and Lawrence County as well as part of Butler County.

Rep. Curt Sonney is running unopposed in his re-election bid to represent the Fourth Legislative District. Sonney, a Republican, has held the office since 2005.

Sen. Michele Brooks, R-50, is not up for re-election until 2022.
