  • 2018 Pennsylvania Primary: What to Know Ahead of the Election

Pennsylvania voters have a lot to think about when they hit the polls for the primary election, including a hotly contested Republican primary for governor to decide who will challenge Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf. Two of the top three Democratic candidates claimed the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee tried to dissuade them running.

However, Greenville residents who are non-partisan and third-party registrants will be able to vote today in the borough's home rule referendum.

The polls are open here in Butler County (and statewide) until 8 p.m. But, for the first time, Omaha-area Democrats have options for the state's lone urban House district.

Nebraska voters on Tuesday will choose a state treasurer, select a Democratic nominee for one of the most competitive House seats in the country and give the up-or-down on new school and road construction in Omaha.

Democrat Lisa Brown officially filed to run against Republican Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers for Washington's Fifth District Congressional seat. The Republican primary is also contested.

Tuesday's primary elections will begin to settle swing state Pennsylvania's chaotic congressional landscape after a court fight ended with redrawn districts just three months ago.

The race Democrats are most concerned about is the Fitzpatrick race, where self-funding philanthropist Scott Wallace has moved back into the district after decades away, most recently living in the D.C. suburbs and South Africa.

If a voter did not receive a ballot they were expecting or a County Voter Information Guide, they should call Elections at (800) SBC-VOTE or (805) 568-2200 to verify their registration status.

You can look at your new district here and you can figure out where to go vote by entering your address here. The victor will run against Democratic Governor Tom Wolf in November.

In the battle for the Republican Senate nomination, U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta is heavily favored over state Rep. Jim Christiana to determine who will challenge Democratic U.S. Sen. The Republicans are Rick Saccone (who lost to Conor Lamb in the nationally watched special election) and Guy Reschenthaler. Another 61 have asked for the nonpartisan ballot, containing only the judge races, bringing the total of early votes to 1,275 out of more than 50,000 eligible. Green said instead of getting the cards by mail, they must be picked up in person.

Ashford, a former Republican, served one term in Congress as a Democrat before Republican Don Bacon beat him for re-election in 2016.
