Culture of Corruption
Open Primary Elections
Rep. Solomon has called for open primary elections. As one of the only nine remaining states with closed primaries, Pennsylvania fails to represent 1.2 million independently registered voters in primary elections. Therefore, candidate selection is left to more partisan voters, which increases political gridlock.
Rep. Solomon is a champion for bringing new energy and voices into the political process. In recently enacted election reform, Jared worked hard to bring mail-in voting to Pennsylvania. In addition, the new election code modernization will expand the franchise by extending the voter registration deadline from 30 to 15 days prior to an election. This is a good start, but we need to do a lot more such as same say voter registration and removing all the archaic language from the Pennsylvania election code.
