This date is outside the DNC's window, the 2nd Tuesday in June (9 June), for state parties to hold their primaries and caucuses. The Board of Elections certified that President Trump is the only presidential candidate qualified to be on the Republican Presidential ballot, therefore the Republican Presidential Primary is cancelled.

The election will be conducted almost entirely by mail. Ballots have to be postmarked by 27 April or delivered by hand on Election Day. The primary's original date was 17 March.
27 March 2020: Due to the COVID-19 virus, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf signed SB 422 which moves the regular Statewide Primaries; Democratic, and Republican Presidential Primaries from 28 April to 2 June.
