Next Tuesday, November 6th, is election day. If you’re registered to vote in Pennsylvania, you will be able to vote for United States Senator, Governor and Lieutenant Governor, Representative in the 4th Congressional District, Senator in the General’s 44th District, and Representative in the General Assembly’s 150th District.

The candidates on the ballot for U.S. senate are Democrat Bob Casey Jr. and Republican Lou Barletta, along with Green Party candidate Neal Gale and Libertarian candidate Dale R. Kerns Jr.

Casey, who is currently the senior senator from Pennsylvania, is running for reelection. According to his campaign website, some of his priorities include addressing issues surrounding public education and changing tax policies to “support working families and actually encourage job growth.”

Casey states he is “fighting for expanded access to everything from pre-K to technical schools to universities.” His website says he has also fought to improve student safety. “As concerns arose across the nation about the dangers of campus sexual assault, Bob took action and passed into law the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act, which outlines steps schools can take to educate students and help prevent sexual assault.” Along with this, Casey promises to fight for tax policies that will “support working families and actually encourage job growth.”

Republican Lou Barletta represents Pennsylvania’s 11th Congressional District and is challenging Casey. Barletta’s campaign page says the main policies he is focused on are lowering taxes on small businesses, creating new, restrictive legislation around immigration, and supporting the second amendment.

Barletta’s campaign website states that he “saved taxpayers nearly $4 billion by implementing a policy to move federal agencies into smaller spaces, cutting waste, and forcing them to negotiate long-term leases.” In regards to immigration, Barletta has “advocated for legislation to cut off all federal funding to sanctuary cities; introduced legislation to make overstaying a visa a criminal offense; and co-sponsored legislation to levy a two percent fee on wire transfers sent south of our border and use that revenue to pay for the southern border wall.”

Cutting funding for sanctuary cities could have serious consequences for nearby Philadelphia. The city has gone to great lengths to protect its sanctuary city status. Philly even sued the Trump administration after it threatened to withhold $1.5 million in federal funding from the city’s law enforcement agencies over policies that protect undocumented immigrants, according to the “Philadelphia Inquirer.”

As for the race for governor, the list of candidates includes Democrat Tom Wolf, Republican Scott R. Wagner, Green Party candidate Paul Glover, and Libertarian Ken V. Krawchuk.

Wolf is the current governor of Pennsylvania, and is running for reelection. His policy priorities include supporting older Pennsylvanians, fighting for affordable health care, and the expansion of Medicaid. As stated on Wolf’s website, “Tom has increased opportunities for older Pennsylvanians to remain in their homes, stood up to Donald Trump’s proposed “age tax” on insurance, and has saved more than 180,000 seniors from losing their Medicare Advantage health plans.”

Businessman and Republican Scott Wagner is running against Wolf. Wagner’s policies center around wanting to make Pennsylvania more “business friendly.” According to Wagner’s campaign website, encouraging business growth in the state is a priority. Wagner believes that “Pennsylvanians and our businesses are being weighed down by the overabundance of regulations our agencies and local governments have placed on them.” Wagner plans to “eliminate unnecessary regulatory burdens.” He also pledges to “eliminate the school taxes on your home, and he’ll break Pennsylvania’s 45-year streak of tax increases.”

To learn more about the candidates running for office this election, make sure to check out their extended policies on their respective campaign websites. In Collegeville, the polling location for students registered on campus is at the Kaleidoscope. Polls open at 7:00 AM and close at 8:00 PM.
