Your vote can make a difference

Tomorrow is Pennsylvania’s primary election. The Realtor® party can impact the election by taking time to vote.

The vast majority of Realtors® understand the importance of voting – it gives us a chance to have a voice in the decisions that are made in our communities and the Commonwealth. I know often times, voter turnout is low during a non-presidential election.

In the General Assembly, there are 20 incumbent state lawmakers retiring, eight new or merged legislative districts due to legislative redistricting and 37 legislators who have a primary election challenger. There are also races for governor, lieutenant governor, and United States Congress. The Pennsylvania Department of State has polling information and a list of candidates at

In addition, as of May 2013, the state approved revised legislative district maps, which change many elections. New legislative district maps are available online.

Making the Realtor® voice heard helps elect candidates who ensure that private property rights continue to be protected. Many decisions that affect the real estate industry and transactions are made at the local and state levels. That’s why it’s so crucial to vote in tomorrow’s primary election.
