About ⅓ of Pennsylvania’s registered voters showed up to the polls to have their voices heard in the municipal elections yesterday and the unofficial results from yesterday’s contests are in. In some contests mail-in and absentee ballots are still being tabulated, while others are in their final counts; the preliminary results of elections in your county can be viewed on your county website. In the statewide elections for Judgeships, it appears that Democrats have been victorious in every race. Voters selected Matthew Wolf for a 10-year term on the Commonwealth Court 52% to 48% over Megan Martin. For the Superior Court, Democrats Jill Beck and Tamika Lane were selected for the two open seats and both Judges Jack Panella and Victor Stable retained their seats within. At press time the race for Supreme Court appears to be for Democrat Daniel McCaffery who held a 53%-47% lead over his opponent Carolyn Carluccio, a gap of about 180,000 votes.
