Pennsylvania Special Elections Scheduled and Challenged
As a result of a struggle over who holds a majority in the Pennsylvania state House, lawmakers scheduled special elections on two different dates to fill the same two vacancies.
Democratic leadership scheduled special elections to fill vacancies in House District 34 and 35 for February 7, 2023, while Republican leadership scheduled them for May 16, 2023.
A lawsuit filed by Republican representatives will likely determine when the special elections will be held and which party has the power to schedule them.
