An “off-year” election? There’s no such thing for these local PA officials

Angie Crouse doesn’t have a lot of time to talk. On a recent Friday morning, the director of elections in Adams County was in the thick of preparing for the May 18 primary, when voters across Pennsylvania will weigh in on ballot questions, vote in partisan primaries, and, in some cases, fill vacant legislative seats in special elections. These municipal primary races typically log the lowest voter turnout of any election cycle. But the reliable dip in participation brings no reprieve for Pennsylvania’s county election officials, who have to prepare for each election as though they’ll see 100 percent voter turnout.
