On the ballot: Election day preview

Election season culminates next week as voters head to the polls to cast ballots in the Nov. 8 General Election.
While the presidential race has garnered much of the media focus over the past year, Pennsylvania voters have down-ballot races to also consider, and a ballot question that would amend on the retirement age of judges.
A version of the ballot question appeared on the primary ballot, but just prior to the election the Pennsylvania Legislature voted to remove the question as they found it confusing and poorly worded.
Voters will decide whether or not to amend the Pennsylvania Constitution to increase the retirement age of judges from 70 years to 75 years of age. For more on the ballot question, see President Judge Jason Legg’s column, Letter of the Law, on page 22.
In the presidential race, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald J. Trump are on the ballot.
Also appearing on the ballot in the presidential race is: Darrell L. Castle (Constitution Party); Jill Stein (Green Party); and Gary Johnson (Libertarian Party).
US Senate
Democratic nominee Katie McGinty is challenging GOP incumbent Pat Toomey in the race for U.S. Senate. Edward Clifford III is running as the Libertarian party nominee.
