NEW CASTLE —
It’s Election Day.
In addition to electing a president for the next four years, Lawrence County voters will be choosing among candidates for the U.S. Senate and House, the state Legislature and statewide offices of attorney general, auditor general and treasurer.
Polls in the county and throughout Pennsylvania will be open until 8 p.m.
Although implementation of Pennsylvania’s voter identification law has been delayed, voters will be asked, but not required, to show an acceptable photo ID Tuesday.
However, first-time voters must show some proof of identification Tuesday, according to county elections director Ed Allison.
Approved forms of ID include a Pennsylvania driver’s license, a voter registration card issued by the county, a current utility bill, bank statement or paycheck, an employee ID and a student ID.
In local races, the majority of voters in Lawrence County will be choosing between U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly, a Republican, and Missa Eaton, a Democrat, in the 3rd Congressional District. Independent Steven Porter is also vying for the seat.
Voters in the southern portion of the county have a choice between U.S. Rep. Mark Critz, a Democrat, and Keith Rothfus, a Republican, in the 12th Congressional District.
State Sen. Elder Vogel, a Republican, is seeking his second term against Democrat Kimberly Villella in the 47th District.
State Rep. Chris Sainato, a Democrat, is running for his 10th term against Jason Murtha, a Republican, in the 9th District.
State Rep. Jaret Gibbons, a Democrat, is running for his fourth term against Michael See, a Republican in the 10th District.
State Rep. Michele Brooks, who represents the 17th District, is unopposed.
