Jay Paterno Receives Ballot No. 409 On Election Day…Again

Thanks, Joe.

History repeated itself Tuesday morning when Jay Paterno, son of late football coach Joe Paterno, received ballot No. 409 at the polls on Election Day.

Coincidentally, Paterno received the same ballot number in the 2020 election. If that isn’t a sign from above…

If you’re not familiar with the iconic number, 409 is the number of games his father won with the Nittany Lions between 1966 and 2011. Chances are, you’ve seen No. 409 on magnets, buttons, and hats around State College.

Paterno posted a photo of his ballot to Twitter Tuesday morning.

Paterno played at Penn State as a quarterback from 1986 to 1990 before launching a coaching career of his own. He was the Nittany Lions’ quarterbacks coach for 12 years after holding positions at the University of Virginia, Connecticut, and James Madison.

These days, Paterno serves on the Penn State Board of Trustees, which he has been a part of since 2017.

The polls are open until 8 p.m. today, folks. For any questions related to voting in Centre County, check out our guide.
