UPDATE: Ballots impounded ahead of possible recount in PA's 18th Congressional District
by TheGreenPapers.com Staff

Republicans have reportedly asked election officials throughout the 18th Congressional District to impound all ballots pending a possible recount, citing election irregularities. The Tuesday 13 March 2018 Pennsylvania Special Election for U. S. House Congressional District 18 is too close to call as of 8 PM EDT. The candidates are separated by 627 votes out of 228,378. Conor Lamb (D 49.84%) v. Rick Saccone (R 49.56%).

UPDATE: PA Special Election for U. S. House CD 18 still Too Close to Call
by TheGreenPapers.com Staff

The Tuesday 13 March 2018 Pennsylvania Special Election for U. S. House Congressional District 18 is too close to call as of 8 AM EDT. The candidates are separated by 641 votes out of 228,177. Conor Lamb (D 49.84%) v. Rick Saccone (R 49.56%).

Further information: Although a number of media outlets, along with other political/electoral information websites and blogs, have called this race for Democrat Conor Lamb, The Green Papers is still considering this election Too Close to Call, if only for the time being.

There are a few hundred absentee ballots still to be counted in Greene County, along with an unknown (albeit small) number of provisional ballots throughout the district- admittedly not enough to change the current apparent outcome in favor of Mr. Lamb. However, while there is no mandatory recount (even in an election this close) for non-Statewide elections in Pennsylvania, Mr. Saccone may- should he so wish- still petition for one within five days of the finalization of the returns.

Texas 6 March Primary
by TheGreenPapers.com Staff

On Tuesday 6 March 2018 there will be primaries in Texas: polls will be open 7 AM to 7 PM local time.

These Primaries are being held to nominate candidates for- among other offices- the State's 'Class 1' seat in the UNITED STATES SENATE, its entire delegation (36 seats) in the U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES and the STATEWIDE offices of Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, Comptroller of the Public Accounts, Commissioner of Agriculture, Commissioner of the General Land Office and 1 of 3 Railroad Commissioners... Third Parties (such as the Green and Libertarian Parties in Texas) are permitted to nominate by Convention instead, but the two Major Parties (Democrats and Republicans) must use the Primary. If no candidate receives more than 50% of the vote in his/her party's 6 March primary, a Tuesday 22 May runoff will be held between the two top vote-getters.

The above, by the way, are the only elective offices we happen to cover on 'The Green Papers': however, there are many other Primaries "down-ballot" (for State Legislature, County office, etc.)-- please check locally!

New page: Weighted Relative Political Party Strength by SECTION and Region
by Richard E. Berg-Andersson

Relative Political Party Strength by SECTION and Region going into the 2018 Midterm Election.

A mathematical model of the Relative Strength of the two Major Parties going into the 2018 Midterm Election weighted by Congressional Apportionment.

On this page, the reader will find tables delineating the relative "strength" of the two Major Political Parties here in the United States of America in each SECTION, Region (and even, in a few cases, sub-Region) throughout the country-- in this case, going into the 2018 Elections based on how each State within such SECTION, Region (and sub-Region) has voted for President of the United States, its own Governor, its Congressional delegation (that is: its two United States Senators plus its member[s] of the U.S. House of Representatives) and its own legislature. The point values found in the tables below will, in most cases, certainly be altered by the results of the 6 November 2018 General Election itself.
