Halfmoon Township is the only township in the county that isn't completely in one district - residents to the west are in the 15th and those in the eastern half are in the 12th.

"This is the map that many people think is natural for Pennsylvania, which is a 50-50 state, a classic battleground, but hasn't performed that way in terms of congressional elections for decades", he said by telephone. Per the U.S. Constitution, all the seats for the U.S. House of Representatives are up this year. Ernie Harris holds the seat but faces attorney Alex White in the Republican primary. Candidates will be running in the newly redrawn districts (more on that below).

For the Democratic Party, the only office to be decided on the runoff ballot is the statewide race for Governor. However, since then, three Republicans have resigned, leaving two seats vacant for now and another filled in a special election by Democrat Conor Lamb.

While Wolf is running unopposed for re-election, the same can not be said for Lt. Gov. Mike Stack, who landed in hot water after reports emerged that he had mistreated state workers.

In the 13th District, Sue Walker is running unopposed in the Democratic Primary; Rep. John Lawrence is running unopposed in the Republican Primary. Casey is one of 10 Democratic senators running for re-election in states won by President Donald Trump in the 2016 election. The victor will run against Democratic Governor Tom Wolf in November.

In a special election for an at-large seat on Coatesville City Council, Democrat Khadijah Al-Amin and Libertarian Nicholas Panagakos are challenging Republican Councilman John Guerrera.

Mat Pruneda and Andrew Morris are vying for the Texas House District 64 Democratic nomination.

The Philadelphia DA's office will have an active Election Fraud Task Force, which takes complaints and responds to issues of alleged electioneering at polling places around Philadelphia. The 18th district includes Pittsburgh, the Mon Valley, and other areas south and east of Pittsburgh.
