#LibertyDay

May 18th is Primary Day in Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania is a “Closed Primary” state, which means that only registered republicans and democrats may vote for candidates in their respective parties.  Because of this rule, many registered voters falsely believe that they are unable to vote on this day.  However, Primary Day is often when special elections and referendums are voted on.

This May 18th all registered voters in PA, regardless of party affiliation, can vote on the referendums to limit the Governor's emergency powers to 21 days, unless extended by legislative vote.

The death of a 2-month-old baby in a Poconos, PA apartment has been ruled a homicide, authorities said.

The infant girl, Ryann Bacchus, was found with trauma to her head resulting in multiple skull fractures in a Barrett Township apartment on March 19, the Monroe County District Attorney's Office said.

County Coroner Thomas Yanac Jr. ruled the baby's death a homicide.

As of last Friday, three people were charged with child endangerment in relation to the child’s death, while homicide charges had not yet been filed, officials said.
