Early Voting: Those without a vote-by-mail or absentee ballot can vote in-person from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm at the Elections Office, starting May 7th.

U.S. Congress: There are elections for both the House and Senate.

Gov. Tom Wolf is running unopposed in the Democratic Primary as he seeks re-election to a second term this fall.

Pennsylvanians will be choosing the major party nominees for the statewide governor and U.S. Senate races, as well as the 18 congressional districts in the commonwealth.

The state Supreme Court issued a new congressional map in February, splitting Centre County into two districts. The victor will face Democrat Malcom Cherry. Four Republicans are also running.

Return voted vote-by-mail ballots directly to the Elections Department or place in one of the postage-free official ballot drop boxes located in front of the Elections Department office, Redding City Hall, Anderson City Hall, and the Shasta Lake Community Center. In the Senate there are 34 Republicans and 16 Democrats. Litton won the Democratic primary in March with 52.81 percent of the vote, facing four opponents.

Democrats are settling primary races to challenge five Republican incumbents and to run in November's general election for five open seats.

Republicans held a 13-5 advantage in the delegation after the 2016 election. If you don't know where to vote, or who you can vote for, here's what you need to know. However, since then, three Republicans have resigned, leaving two seats vacant for now and another filled in a special election by Democrat Conor Lamb. In the State House, there are 119 Republicans and 81 Democrats, and three vacant seats.

Every congressional district in Virginia except for one is contested this year. Any voter in line by 8 p.m.is allowed to vote.

You can also look at sample ballots.
