PA lawmakers vote to move primary election


HARRISBURG, DAUPHIN COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU-TV) The COVID-19 pandemic has forced Pennsylvania lawmakers to pass legislation that will move the April 28 Primary to June 2. 

Lawmakers from both the House and Senate approved legislation today pushing back the Primary and say it will now be sent to Governor Tom Wolf for his signature.

State Senator John Yudichak voted on legislation from his laptop computer inside his Nanticoke District Office.

“There’s no question; they would not have been prepared to handle a fair election. There’s no question of that. They didn’t have the staff, didn’t have the resources and it wasn’t the right thing to do in terms of public health,” said Yudichak.

State election officials are urging people to vote by mail.
