Double-Check That Ballot
Voters in several PA counties will have special ballots today, without Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Joe Vodvarka.
Democrats in Washington County will cast their primary ballots for all contests except for the Senate race on electronic voting machines, Ryan Deto of the Pittsburgh City Paper reports.
All four Democratic Senate candidates – Joe Sestak, Katie McGinty, John Fetterman and Vodvarka – will appear on paper ballots, with results expected to trickle in from the southwestern county.
Democrats in Lancaster and Columbia counties will see Sestak, McGinty and Fetterman on their electronic ballots and will have to write-in Vodvarka’s name to cast their vote for the small business owner.
Vodvarka told the Pittsburgh City Paper it is unfair he had just seven days to campaign for the seat, while his son/campaign manager Jesse said the ballot issues could affect his father’s chances.
In the state’s other 64 counties, Vodvarka’s name will appear at the top of Senate pile.
