Thank you, Canvass Board

The 2021 Primary Election resulted in nearly 6,000 write-in votes in Armstrong County. To count those votes, a sworn, multipartisan Canvass Board of citizens worked tirelessly from May 21 through June 4. They looked at each and every write-in vote to make sure that it was recorded exactly as the voter intended.

The Armstrong County Board of Elections wishes to thank the dedicated Democratic, Republican, and Independent voters who served on the Canvass Board to get this big job done. The Board also appreciates the patience shown by voters and candidates while results were pending.

What’s next?

The current results are unofficial. Once the results are certified, official write-in winners will be mailed a letter with paperwork for them to accept or reject their nominations. If accepting, they must complete their candidate paperwork. If the office they are running for has a fee, this must be paid. The fees are only assessed for county-wide office ($100/party), magisterial district judge ($100/party), or constable ($10/party).

Write-in winners are determined by two factors:

  1. To be eligible to move on to November, a write-in candidate must have received a minimum number of Primary votes equivalent to the number of signatures he or she would have needed on a nomination petition for that office. The minimum number of signatures/write-in votes is 100 for county-wide offices,10 for most local offices, and 5 for Inspector of Election.
  2. To move on to the November ballot, a write in candidate must be the winner (have the highest total number of votes) in a race where one seat is open, or have enough votes to be among the winners in races where multiple seats are open.

Once everything is finalized, Democratic and Republican winners, including write-in winners who accept their nomination, will move on to the November Municipal Election.

These candidates may circulate Nomination Papers NOW to get on the November ballot. This year, the nomination papers must be filed with the Armstrong County Election Office by close of business on Monday, August 2.
