Humane PA is committed to electing humane candidates. We have already received many requests for endorsements, but before we can endorse any candidate we must determine if they meet our requirements. We have created an online Humane PA 2012 Candidate Survey .
Tuesday January 24th kicks off Pennsylvania’s election season as the first date that candidates have to circulate and file nomination petitions. They must be filed three weeks later on February 15th. Petitions are necessary to ensure each candidate can obtain the required number of signatures to be nominated. The PA Dept. of State has more information on the nominating and election process at: Voting and Elections. If you or someone you know is interested in running for office please visit PA Dept. of State Running for Office
Remember, candidates are always looking for volunteers to help with petitions! It is a great way to get to know your candidates and let them know that you are interested in the humane treatment of animals. You can get more information from your local party headquarters (many candidates have Facebook pages linked on the HumanePA Facebook page too).
If you want your candidate to be considered for an endorsement please direct them to our Humane PA 2012 Candidate Survey to get a jump on our endorsement process! Thank you all for helping to keep humane issues in front of candidates!
*Please note this survey is for candidates only.
