We are just nine seats away from turning the PA State House blue. The work starts now! 

There is a special election in House District 18 (HD-18) Tuesday 3/17 in Bucks County (just north of Philadelphia, just a five hour drive from Boston; Google map)

This is our first HUGE opportunity to flip a state house seat this year, and that’s just what we are going to do. Help us flip HD-18 by canvassing Saturday 3/14-Sunday 3/15 before the Tuesday 3/17 election (or any Saturday or Sunday before the election).

About PA HD-18

HD 18 encompasses Bensalem Township and other neighborhoods in Lower Bucks County. This district has been represented by Republicans since 1973—but now this seat is open, and it’s ours for the taking!

The Republican incumbent recently retired to serve as the minority County Commissioner in Bucks County–minority because the county flipped to Democratic control in 2019 for the first time in 36 years! 

Harold Hayes is endorsed by Turn PA Blue. He is an active member of the Plumber’s Union and will be a voice for working families in Harrisburg

We can flip this seat, but voter turnout is key!

Canvassers, phone bankers and donors are needed to reach as many voters as possible. Here’s how to help:
