Supreme Court Rejects Challenges to Newly Drawn PA Maps

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court today found that the Final Reapportionment Plan of the Pennsylvania Legislative Reapportionment Committee is in compliance with the mandates of the Pennsylvania Constitution and the United States Constitution.

The high court dismissed all nine outstanding motions and has released a schedule for the General Primary election calendar to be held on May 17, 2022, for seats in the General Assembly and State Party Committees.

“I’m pleased with this ruling because not only were these maps fair, reasonable and supported in a bipartisan way, today’s decision means we can proceed with our election calendar and folks can begin preparation to run for office or learn who their potential representatives will be,” said Senate Democratic Leader and LRC member Jay Costa said.

  1. Half as long to circulate. No reduction in number of signatures required.

    However, the maps are fair, so that’s good

    1. 10 days to get 300 signatures. I think you end up seeing a lot of uncontested districts this cycle because of that.
