Voter Confusion in Selinsgrove

April 26, 2016

By Hilde Kate Lysiak

As Pennsylvanians went to cast their votes in the Presidential primary some found choosing their candidate confusing.

That’s because each voter needs to make two choices to pick their presidential candidate. One is for nominee and the other for a delegate who will support that nominee at the party’s convention.

For Democrat voters it is easy. Democrats can choose between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, and then pick from  a list of delegates whose names on the ballot next to the candidate they support. But for Republicans those delegates can back whichever candidate they choose and change their minds at any time so the ballots don’t say which candidate they support.

Many voters didn’t know which delegates supported which candidates!

“The delegates were confusing to me,” said Beth Durr  a Selinsgrove resident who went to cast her vote at Sharon Lutheran Church at 120 Market Street.

Other voters outside of the church told the OSN they were also confused by the delegates.

But don’t blame local poll workers, the Republican Party is responsible for the delegate confusion, according to


Poll workers reported a higher than usual turnout and are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

      Nice of you to pay the $19 trillion. The left acts like we can buy new things, when in fact very little of what we now have is paid off.
