WESA Voting Matters

WESA Voting Matters

An initiative to provide nonpartisan, independent elections journalism for southwestern Pennsylvania.

The mission of WESA Voting Matters is to ensure that the greatest number of eligible voters go into elections prepared to make choices that create the future they want for their families and their communities.

Here you will find reporting from WESA News, our state partners, and NPR on key issues from public policy platforms to election integrity. You will also find links to election specials presented by NPR, American Public Media, and other public radio partners. And you can access the WESA Voter Guide, which covers key races and issues in southwestern Pennsylvania.

We are also interested in your feedback. You can send that to

WESA Voting Matters is funded in part by a generous grant from The Heinz Endowments, as well as support from Susan Downs Pettigrew and Terrell Jefferson, Gwen Hepler in loving memory of her husband Dan Hepler, Rick and Bonnie from Mt. Lebanon, and two anonymous donors. You too can support our effort to create a more informed voter base by giving here.
