Primary election day - what you need to know

Meet the candidates

In short, there are many choices for voters from each party, every vote counts and we continue to call for those unaffiliated with a particular political party to be able to vote on primary election day.

Republicans outnumber Democrats in Pennsylvania's House delegation, though a new congressional map is making the state a focal point of Democrats' effort to reclaim House control in November. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. and is claiming the progressive mantle. "Governor's race isn't turning people on, is it?" he wrote in an email.

Spending in the hotly contested gubernatorial primary has passed $20 million and is Tuesday's marquee race.

Seeking that shot are attorney Laura Ellsworth, healthcare consultant Paul Mango and state Sen.

A Homeland Security official has met with Pennsylvania officials to discuss election security as voters choose Republican challengers to Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf and U.S. Sen. Wolf and Casey have no opposition today.

It was a rough night for Republican members of Congress a week ago.

However, when primaries center on offices other than the presidency, turnout percentages clearly drop.

Democratic incumbent U.S. Rep. Brendan Boyle is seeking re-election. The leading candidate is Republican state Sen. But the state's Democratic establishment is lining up behind A.J. Balukoff, a 72-year-old Idaho businessman who ran for governor in 2014.

Democrats and Republicans in Crawford County's 68 precincts will cast ballots to select nominees for their respective parties for U.S. Senate and Congressional representative at the federal level; and governor, lieutenant governor, senator and representative at the state level.

The result: 40.9 percent of Democrats turned out, only 26.8 percent of Republicans. After redistricting, GOP Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick's 1st District shifted from territory that President Trump narrowly carried to an area that Hillary Clinton won by two points, giving Democrats a prime pickup opportunity.

The 112th House Democratic race that year highlighted the way a single race can attract more voters.

Rowan County Democrats will choose a nominee to challenge the county clerk who spent five days in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Ballots went out to Benton County voters almost three weeks ago, but as of Monday afternoon, only 16,037 had been received from Benton County's 56,581 eligible voters for a turnout of 28.34 percent, according to the Benton County Elections Office.

Incumbent Wolf will face no challengers in the Democratic primary for governor.

But after the pre-poll surveys failed to identify a clear wave in the state, exit polls are likewise indicating a hung assembly. In 2005, former Prime Minister Gowda had expelled Siddaramaiah from JD (S) and it was then that Siddaramaiah joined Congress.

Candidates for the state House of Representatives across the region, including four incumbents, are unopposed for nomination in the primary election today, but following today's vote, they will be back in the fall in their bid for election to a two-year term.

The only "bad" news for Democrats is that Lamb's current seat (the 14th) is likely to be lost to the Republicans.

Weather sometimes plays a role.

"If it rains the way they're saying it's going to rain, it's anybody's guess", Patrick said.

Polls close in Pennsylvania at 8 p.m. ET, in Nebraska at 9 p.m. ET, and final polls close at 11 p.m. ET in Idaho, which crosses two time zones.

Leicester's lead was at two for just two minutes. "It's insane to lose a game where you've scored four goals away", Puel added. Lamela scored another to make it 4-3 as Spurs scored three times in the space of 11 minutes to turn the game on its head.
