The Doylestown Democrats will host drive-through nomination petition signing events Saturday and again on February 25 to qualify candidates for the May 15 Pennsylvania municipal primary election. The petition drives will take place at the Atrium, located at 301 South Main Street, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Candidates must gather a specific signature quota to appear on the primary ballot. Eligible signers must be registered Democrat voters.
Petitions representing candidates for the following races will be available: Pennsylvania Supreme, Superior, Commonwealth and Common Pleas Court judiciary, Doylestown township supervisor, Central Bucks School District school board director, as well as the following county seats: commissioner, registrar of wills, treasurer, and clerk of courts.
The circulation of petitions for the upcoming primary began on February 14 and will continue through March 7.
“We need help to get our Democratic candidates from School Board to the PA Supreme Court on the ballot. 2023 is a vital election year here in Doylestown as we can flip the Township Board of Supervisors for the first time ever and potentially flip the Central Bucks School Board,” said Connor O’Hanlon, chair of the Doylestown Democrats and host of the Greater Society Podcast.
By utilizing a “drive and sign” model, the Doylestown Democrats have incorporated ease into supporting candidates for the upcoming May primary election by removing stumbling blocks – such as parking and weather – from interfering with the signature gathering process.
