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.

What You’re Voting On

Everything You’ll See on Your Municipal Ballot (And What it Means)

Besides the elections you might’ve heard of already, you’ll see a few statewide positions on your ballot and even an amendment to Pennsylvania’s constitution. Read up on what you can expect so you’re not blindsided going into the polls.

Who To Vote For

A Procrastinator’s Guide to the 2017 State College Municipal Election

The most highly contested races in this year’s election are those for State College mayor and State College Borough Council. If you haven’t been following along, this guide will give you a briefing on each candidate in those races and what they stand for — all in 140 characters or less.

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.
