In the Republican primary, the GOP will select a candidate to run against Gov. Tom Wolf in November, in addition to assorted state and federal races, while Democrats will be voting on nominees to potentially send to Harrisburg and Washington, D.C.

Pennsylvanians will head to the polls Tuesday for the primary election.

For the Democratic Party, the only office to be decided on the runoff ballot is the statewide race for Governor.

Voters can look up their polling place at centrecountypa.gov/index.aspx?NID=243, or the location is also printed on voter identification cards.

Only those candidates who are endorsed by a county party committee, made up of party members from the voting districts in each municipality and a leadership team, get to use the county committee's name or slogan on the ballot. The victor faces Republican Gov. Greg Abbott in the fall.
