Your Ultimate Guide To The 2017 State College Municipal Election

Happy Election Day! You’ll have the opportunity to vote in municipal elections on Tuesday, November 7. Here’s what you should know if you’re registered in State College:

When to Vote

Where to Vote

Polling places! Most students who live on campus will probably vote at the HUB. Others might be at various other locations downtown, but I can vouch for the polling place locations to tell you they’re all convenient and you’re probably already going to walk by your polling place tomorrow. That’s the point, after all.

The easiest way to find your own polling place is to use Centre County’s handy dandy locator.

OS Mayoral Profiles

Michael Black | Don Hahn | Ron Madrid

OS Mayoral Endorsement: Michael Black

While each candidate brings his own valuable experiences to the table, we believe Black’s diverse involvement in the Centre region and his desire to challenge the status quo in the Borough make him the best candidate to become the next mayor of State College.
