Shape history! Vote on Tuesday, November 3 when Pennsylvanians will elect 3 judges to the 7-member Pennsylvania Supreme Court. These judges will have a profound impact on Pennsylvania law and the lives of Pennsylvanians.
No matter your positions on issues, you should exercise your obligation to vote. (Find your polling place.)
The Supreme Court justices will address fundamental matters, such as the application of Article I, Section 27 of the Pennsylvania Constitution, the Environmental Rights Amendment, which states:
The people have a right to clean air, pure water, and to the preservation of the natural, scenic, historic and esthetic values of the environment. Pennsylvania’s public natural resources are the common property of all the people, including generations yet to come. As trustee of these resources, the Commonwealth shall conserve and maintain them for the benefit of all the people.
Supreme Court justices serve 10-year terms before they are subject to voter recall. Between now and 2025, the court will make dozens of rulings that will impact our land and water; our public lands and wildlife; our environmental, social and economic health. Take the opportunity to vote for who you want to make these decisions; vote on November 3.
