The PA Chamber has a message for our member companies and the voters of Pennsylvania – exercise your civic duty and vote in the General Election on Tuesday, November 8!
While every election cycle is important, this year, Pennsylvania is at the center of the political universe. America’s eyes are fixed on the Keystone State as voters head to the polls or send in their ballots by mail to make their picks for the U.S. Senate and Governor, as well as for Congress and the state House and state Senate.
The Constitution requires that congressional and state legislative district lines be redrawn based on new census data and population changes. Click here to see the new maps, read district descriptions, and see whether your household might fall under the new district lines.
The PA Chamber often reminds our members that the electoral decisions we make could change the course of our Commonwealth’s economic health for years to come.
As Pennsylvania continues to grapple with the pandemic’s economic fallout and our organization works to drive our economic recovery forward, it’s more important than ever to ensure that pro-growth elected officials are elected to office and working with us to move Pennsylvania forward. A central part of our mission in promoting a strong and vibrant business climate is encouraging our members to get out and vote on Election Day, and urging those in your workplaces and communities to do the same.
To that end, ChamberPAC—the bipartisan political arm of the PA Chamber—has been proud to endorse candidates for the state House and state Senate who have exhibited, through their answers to a questionnaire or their voting history, that they prioritize pro-growth public policy and would help to support the mission of a more economically prosperous Pennsylvania. The full list of ChamberPAC-endorsed candidates is available here.
Remember—the single most powerful tool each one of us has is our VOICE and our VOTE!
