Election 2023

Election Day is Tuesday, November 7th

What is on the ballot this year in Chester County?

The 2023 election in Chester County is a crucial municipal election. The key offices that have major power over our lives as residents of Chester County are on the ballot.

Our incumbent Chester County Commissioners, Josh Maxwell and Marian Moskowitz, are seeking re-election to a second term after their historic victory in 2019. 

Several county row officers are also seeking re-election, including incumbent Prothonotary Debbie Bookman and Register of Wills Michele Vaughn. These offices are instrumental in keeping our county working for all residents with fairness and equity.

There will also be primaries for a number of county-level positions where the incumbents are not seeking re-election, including District Attorney and Recorder of Deeds, as well as a number of open primaries for Court of Common Pleas judges. As Democrats, it is paramount that we support those candidates that we feel represent our values at every level of these county-wide offices.
