HARRISBURG, Pa. (ErieNewsNow) - Voters registered with either the Democratic or Republican parties will have until 8 p.m. to cast their vote in person. If voters are in-line by that time, they will still be able to vote. 

If voting by mail, and you have not returned your ballot, the Department of State recommends dropping your ballot off at your county’s board of elections office, or in a drop box if your county provides it. 

Here are the candidates for Pennsylvania governor voters can expect to see on their ballot tomorrow.

Candidates for Governor: 


Josh Shapiro: Pennsylvania’s Attorney General is the only Democrat running for governor. Prior to being elected Attorney General in 2016, Shapiro served as Chairman of the Montgomery County Commissioners and is also a former State Representative. Shapiro is the only pro-choice candidate in the race for governor and has consistently said he would veto any anti-abortion legislation passed by the General Assembly. Shapiro unveiled plans to help consumers, like providing a $250/car gas tax rebate for up to four cars per family. He also says he would expand eligibility for the property tax and rent rebate programs to help seniors by using remaining American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) dollars. 


Doug Mastriano: A retired Amry Colonel, Mastriano serves as a state Senator representing Franklin County. He received former President Trump’s endorsement on Saturday. If elected, he says he would eliminate COVID mandates, executive orders, high taxes, and regulations from the Wolf administration, and restore integrity in elections. He plans to eliminate “No Excuse” mail-in voting and ballot drop boxes, enact universal voter ID, and increase poll watchers if elected. Mastriano is a pro-life, pro-Second Amendment conservative. 

Lou Barletta: Barletta was elected to Congress in 2010 and represented Pennsylvania's 11th Congressional District until 2018. Before Congress, he served as a city council member, and then ultimately mayor of Hazleton, Pennsylvania from 2000 to 2010. His top priorities throughout his campaign have been unleashing Pennsylvania’s natural resources, reviving the economy, supporting law enforcement and combatting illegal immigration. He says he would invest in schools and businesses to ensure graduates stay in the commonwealth instead of moving elsewhere for opportunities. Barletta is pro-school choice, pro-life, and pro-Second Amendment. 

Bill McSwain: Former Marine Corps Infantry Officer, Bill McSwain, served as a federal prosecutor before becoming U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. The Chester County native says he is the only GOP candidate with law enforcement experience and has made public safety a cornerstone of his campaign. McSwain has also been an outspoken advocate for school choice and expanding access to charter education. He is pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, and plans to reduce taxes. If elected, he pledged to cut the state’s gas tax in half. 

Dave White: Delaware County native, Dave White is a successful businessman who started his own HVAC company in 2005. As a third-generation pipefitter, White says he would bring his results-oriented work ethic to Harrisburg if elected governor. He previously served as Ridley Township Commissioner and as a Delaware County Councilman. White says he is the best candidate to ramp up energy production in the commonwealth, and plans to use throughways and other infrastructure for pipelines to carry energy to ports for export. He is pro-life and a strong believer in Second Amendment rights. 

Dr. Nche Zama: Born in Cameroon, Africa, Dr. Zama came to America as a teenager. He is a cardiothoracic surgeon from the Poconos who completed training at the Cleveland Clinic and Harvard University. He is pro-life and believes life begins at conception. He is pro-Second Amendment and says Pennsylvania must become the global leader in quality, patient-centered healthcare.  

Joe Gale: Montgomery County Commissioner, Joe Gale, says he is a pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, pro-small business, pro-pipeline, pro-Trump conservative. He says he is different from the other candidates because he’s not controlled by the GOP establishment. Gale would eliminate Pennsylvania’s 50 days of no-excuse mail-in voting, and mandate photo-identification at the polls if elected. 

Charlie Gerow: Born in Brazil, Gerow was adopted by American missionaries and has lived in Pennsylvania for six decades. He is a conservative leader and activist who began his career working for Ronald Reagan before becoming the CEO of a public relations firm in Harrisburg. Gerow says he would govern the state with the conservative principles of promoting economic growth and reducing taxes and regulations. He says he is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, a pro-life advocate, and a fighter for school choice. 

Jake Corman and Melissa Hart will appear on the ballot, but have recently dropped out of the race. Both candidates endorsed Lou Barletta. 

Polls open at 7 a.m., which is also when election officials can begin processing mail-in and absentee ballots.
