HARRISBURG, Pa. - Election Day is this upcoming Tuesday, and voters in Pennsylvania will be choosing from seven candidates to fill three State Supreme Court Justice Seats. PA Republican Supreme Court candidates Judge Judy Olson, Judge Mike George and Judge Anne Covey held a press conference in Harrisburg to talk about the election.

Unlike other positions, Supreme Court Justices aren't reelected every 2-4 years, so whoever is elected will sit as a judge for a minimum of ten years.

"Every aspect of our life will be affected by what happens next Tuesday," Judge George said, "The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania touches every part of our society-- whether it be how we support or children, how we care for our members getting along with each other."

The GOP candidates are going up against democratic hopefuls Judge Christine L. Donohue, Judge Kevin M. Dougherty, David N. Wecht, and Independent Paul P. Panepinto.
