Although it is an “off year,” without any national candidates, there are both state and local races. Your vote matters.
Most important perhaps are the dozens of borough, township, and school board races that make a difference to us all.
Gettysburg Borough Council:
Ward 1: Peter Bales (R) vs. Kierstan Belle (D)
Ward 2: Matt Moon (D) vs Shelley Knouse (R)
Ward 3: Brian Hodges (R) vs. Alisha Sanders (D)
At large. Chad-Alan Carr (D) vs. Kelly Kaiser (R)
Gettysburg Area School District
Five of the nine seats on the board are open, which means that each voter may choose up to five candidates on their November ballot.

Candidates include school board incumbents Al Moyer, Michael Dickerson, and Tim Seigman.
Also runnng are Alice Broadway, Elizabeth Blanc, Martha Obryant, and Cynthia Ayers.
