Percentage voting with party
Jason Altmire voted with the Democratic Party 55.6% of the time, which ranked 191 among the 192 House Democratic members as of December 2011.
Because of redistricting, Altmire is forced to challenge fellow incumbent Rep. Mark Critz in the April 24, 2012 Democratic primary. They are both running for re-election in the new 12th congressional district. Altmire was nearly forced off the ballot by a legal challenge from the Critz campaign. Critz argued that hundreds of Altmire's signatures were invalid because the petition gatherer lived outside of the district, thus violating Pennsylvania law. 
On March 5, however, a Pennsylvania judge ruled against Critz, allowing Altmire to stay on the ballot. After the ruling, Altmire said Critz had resorted to the tactics of a "prom king."
