Allegheny County is governed by an elected County Executive. The primary election for the Allegheny County Executive will take place on Tues., May 16, 2023. The general election will be held on Tues., November 7, 2023.
AARP Pennsylvania is dedicated to making certain that Allegheny County voters 50-plus know how to register to vote, where to vote in person, what the rules are for mail-in, absentee or early voting, and key dates for voting.
While AARP Pennsylvania strongly encourages people to get out and vote for the candidates of their choice, we do not have a political action committee for donating to candidates, we do not endorse or oppose candidates, nor do we contribute to any candidate or political party.
Our goal for the Allegheny County Executive election is simple: to ensure Allegheny County voters 50+ and their families have all the information necessary to make their vote count.
