Local Primary Races to Watch
Written by Larry Roeder, Editor

        Next Tuesday’s primary election features few battles in area municipal races, but the contested ones should bring voters to the polls.

        A battle for two seats on the New Hanover Township Board of Supervisors will take place as incumbent Republican Ralph Fluharty and Phil Agliano have teamed up to run against fellow GOP’ers Mike Salerno and Tiffany Rusin.
        In Pennsburg, six Republican candidates are running for four open seats on borough council. Incumbents Vicki Lightcap and Michael Mensch are facing Cody Belmont, Fred Schutte, Wayne Stevens and Diane Stevens for the November ballot nods. The winners will face Douglas Criddle, who is running alone on the Democratic side.
        The Marlborough Township race for supervisor pits incumbent Brian Doremus against Eric Tielemans, with the winner facing Democrat Betty White in the November election.
        In the race for Montgomery County Judge of Common Pleas, Sharon Giamporcaro of Lower Merion, Gail Weilheimer of Abington, Steven Tolliver of Cheltenham and Maureen Coggins of Upper Hanover Township have all cross-filed to run for two open slots on the November ballot. 
        A controversial voter ID measure in Pennsylvania will again not be in effect for the state’s primary elections, more than a year after it was signed into law. The decision came after lawyers on both sides reached an accord allowing state residents to vote in the upcoming primary without submitting identification. Poll workers may ask for photo ID, but voters not required to show it in order to vote.  Individuals voting for the first time or voting at a new polling place must show either photo or non-photo ID.  
        The temporary agreement extends an October court ruling that prohibits enforcement of the law until an upcoming lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the measure is ruled on.
        Those proceedings are expected to begin in July.
        A special “Election Guide” appears in this week’s edition of the Town and Country.
