By 2:45 p.m., 56 voters had visited the State College Municipal Building polling place, which serves the 29th Precinct, said Sharon Gaddes, judge of elections.
The precinct has 1,830 registered voters.
“It’s a very slow election,” she said.
But, she said, the low voter turnout is on track with other municipal general elections.

Election results remain unofficial until certified by the Board of Elections.
