Nominating Petitions for May Primary Are Now Available

Are you considering a run for open seats on school board or board of commissioners?

Considering a run for Upper St. Clair School Board? Or Upper St. Clair Board of Commissioners? Or a local post in one of the surrounding communities?

Nominating petitions for all local elected offices appearing on the May 21 municipal primary ballot are now available.

Nominating petitions may be obtained by visiting the Elections Division in Room 601 of the Allegheny County Office Building located at 542 Forbes Ave. in downtown Pittsburgh between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. For questions or additional information, call 412-350-4528. 

Candidates for statewide judicial and Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas races may obtain petitions by contacting the Commonwealth’s Bureau of Commissions, Elections & Legislation at 717-787-5280 or by visiting www.dos.state.pa.us/bcel.

Due to changes in the Pennsylvania Election Code, petitions issued by the Allegheny County Elections Division in prior years cannot be used by candidates for this year’s election cycle.

Any idea when Nominating Papers will be available for third party and independents to seek access to the ballot in November?

Could someone post how may signatures are required on a nominating petition and what fees are due when the nominating petition is filed. Many people have suggested that someone should run for office but they have no idea what is involved in getting your name on the ballot.
