If you voted in the Republican primary, you can only vote in the Republican runoff, and vice versa.

Polls are open from 7 8 p.m. Pennsylvania has closed primaries, meaning only members of a particular political party will be able to vote for party candidates.

Today is primary election day in Pennsylvania. He is the state party's endorsed candidate, and he has used the millions he made in the waste-hauling industry to spend the most in the race - more than $12 million and counting.

Lt. Gov. Mike Stack is fighting for another term in office after a first term in which he had a chilly relationship with Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf.

That leaves the treasurer's seat open, and Republican state Sen. Elections Clerk Vanessa Waddell went last week to Cartersville, where a state investigator delivered cards to officials from several counties in the region.

Signs also have been posted regarding an error on some local Republican ballots, and Elections Board members firmed up plans Monday for dealing with it. He can run for the office because the law only requires he be a Washington resident upon taking office, Erich Ebel, a spokesman for the Secretary of State's office said.

State Rep. Andre Jacque of De Pere is running against Green Bay businessman Alex Renard for the Republican nomination to the Senate seat. That has put a target on his back for Republicans.

Mariners second baseman leaves game with fractured hand
Since April 17, he is 1-1 with 2 holds and an 8.44 ERA (5 ER, 5.1 IP) with 7 strikeouts and 6 walks in 6 games. "Everyone knows what he means to this team, and he's down right now, but we have other guys who can step up".

Democratic voters in Mercer County - along with their counterparts in Erie, Crawford and Lawrence counties and part of Butler County - will choose a nominee to run for the 16th Congressional District seat. The sleepier Republican contest for U.S. Senate could play a role come November in deciding whether Republicans maintain U.S. Senate control.

I'm an independent. How do I vote in a partisan primary?

Now, down to the major races: Democrats will vote either Andrew White or Lupe Valdez to face Governor Greg Abbott in November. The Republican got a late boost from Trump, who called him a "very special guy" in the robo-call. Pennsylvania is one of 10 states with Democratic senators that have Senate elections in 2018. Since June 2016, the Republicans' registration advantage has grown by 4.3 percentage points statewide.

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

Under the new boundaries, Democrats expect to flip two seats while three others are considered toss ups. Incumbent Republican Commissioner Al French hasn't yet filed for re-election, yet he's already drawn a Democratic opponent, Robbi Anthony.

The high-profile contests in the primary are vacancies in the large parts of Pennsylvania where one party or the other has an overwhelming majority of voters.

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