The 2022 elections will be held on November 8. There will be several important races on the ballot, most notably to elect a new Governor and a new U.S. Senator.

On Election Day, Dickinson students who have registered to vote at the school can vote at Bosler Library, the public library across from Denny Hall, at 158 W High Street. Students can walk along the S West Street side of the building to a small gate that will allow access to the back parking lot of the building, where you can go inside to vote. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., and anyone who is still waiting in line after 8 p.m. can stay and vote.

There will be five elections on the ballot, including two statewide races. In an election that will be key in deciding control of the U.S. Senate, there are five candidates, including Republican Mehmet Oz and Democrat John Fetterman. For the office of Governor there are five tickets including Democrat Josh Shapiro and Republican Doug Mastriano. The race for Lieutenant Governor, who are elected on the same ticket, also has five tickets including Democrat Austin Davis and Republican Carrie DelRosso.

For the three regional candidates, each election only has Republican and Democratic candidates. Pennsylvania’s 10th District in the U.S. House is contested between incumbent Republican Scott Perry and Democrat Shamaine Daniels. The election for the 34th District of the Pa. state Senate includes Republican Greg Rothman and Democrat Jim Massey. Finally, the 199th District of the Pa. state House is between incumbent Republican Barbara Gleim and Democrat Alan Howe.

Information about individual candidates can be found at, a non-partisan site created by the League of Women Voters, who ask candidates their positions on relevant issues and compile them. To find information on our regional candidates, input the address “272 W High St, Carlisle, PA, 17013.” There is also, where you can look up candidates to find their views. Vote Smart also uses prior statements or policies from candidate’s websites in cases where no direct answer to the survey was given.
