This list, while nearly set in stone, is classified as unofficial by Erie County because of the following reasons:

Currently, Counties including Erie are awaiting a judicial decision on several items –

·        The candidacy of Republican Ted Cruz for President.
·        A challenge to the wording of the ballot question regarding the retirement age for Judges in the Commonwealth.
