Tuesday’s election may be in an off-year, but that doesn’t mean it won’t have statewide implications.
The highest-profile race is for a seat on the state Supreme Court, and seats are also open on the Superior and Commonwealth courts.
Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court leans heavily Democratic right now, with a 5 to 2 majority.
The Republican candidate, Sallie Mundy, currently holds one of those seats and is seeking a full 10-year term. She was appointed as an interim justice by Governor Tom Wolf last year.
