HARRISBURG (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - State lawmakers have voted to delay Pennsylvania’s primary election by five weeks to June 2, instead of April 28, potentially past the spike of the state’s spreading coronavirus cases.

Both chambers of the state legislature approved it today and Governor Wolf says he will sign it.

In addition to delaying the primary date, the legislation give county election offices a head start on processing and tabulating mail-in ballots, newly allowed under a five-month-old election law.
