Your 2016 PA Primary Voting Guide


It’s Election Day in Pennsylvania!

The polls opened at 7 a.m. and the Republican and Democratic parties will battle it out today to determine their respective candidates for the general elections in the fall. The elections will run until 8 p.m.

There are three major races that should be heavily contested — President, Senate, and Attorney General. Pennsylvania holds a closed primary, so you can only vote for whichever party you’ve registered with. If you’re registered as a Democrat, for example, you can’t vote for Donald Trump in the Republican primary.

Here’s a list of all the important candidates with links to their campaign websites, as well as any coverage Onward State has given candidates that visited State College. There’s also information to help you find your local polling place.

Where is my polling place?

CentreCountyVotes.com will tell you where your polling place is and if you’re registered to vote. You can check it out here. Just type in your address and it will tell you where to go. If you live on campus or registered to vote with a campus address, it will likely direct you to the HUB. Make sure you bring your ID if you have one, just in case.

Remember, it doesn’t matter who you vote for, it just matters that you vote. It’s your civic duty. Go out to your polling place today and support your candidates.
