Centre County residents head to the polls Tuesday for the municipal elections.

On Monday, that meant setting up voting stations at 91 precincts from Philipsburg to Rebersburg.

Polling places are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Information on where to vote can be found on the county’s website at www.centrecountypa.gov.

Races include:

Democrat Dwayne Woodruff and Republican Sallie Mundy for state Supreme Court; Democrats Maria McLaughlin, Carolyn Nichols, Debbie Kunselman and Geoff Moulton, Republicans Craig Stedman, Emil Giordano, Wade Kagarise and Mary Murray and Green Party candidate Jules Mermelstein for four seats on the state Superior Court; and Democrats Ellen Ceisler and Irene M. Clark versus Republicans Paul Lalley and Christine Fizzano Cannon for Commonwealth Court.

Democrat Brian Marshall and Republican Ron McGlaughlin are both vying to be Centre County Court of Common Pleas judge.

Democrat Bernie Cantorna won both his party’s nomination and the Republican slot via write-ins in the primary race for district attorney. He is the only name on the ballot for the race in the general election.

Supreme Court justices Thomas Saylor and Debra Todd are seeking retention, along with Superior Court Judge Jacqueline O. Shogan and Centre County President Judge Pamela Ruest.

Democrat Casey McClain and Republican Dave White want to be the district judge representing Ferguson, Halfmoon, Patton and portions of College townships.

The state is also asking for votes on a constitutional amendment on homestead property tax assessment exclusion.

Other races affect individual municipalities or school districts.
