Polls are open from 7 a.m. -8 p.m.

The justices redrew the boundaries with the help of independent experts after Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf rejected a proposal drawn by Republican legislative leaders as unfairly skewed in their party's favor.

Pennsylvania is a hotly contested swing state, and the redistricting is expected to boost Democrats' chances of winning several of the U.S. House seats in the state in November.

Voters will pick who will challenge several incumbents for their seat in Congress on Tuesday, June 12. The victor will run against Democratic Governor Tom Wolf in November. There are no other candidates on the ballot in this district, but WESA's An-Li Herring has reported that it will probably be a competitive race. In the Senate there are 34 Republicans and 16 Democrats.

Lewis Hamilton Wins Spain Grand Prix
Hamilton made a clean getaway from pole, getting the holeshot into Turn 1. "For us it was a ideal result today", he added. Grosjean's spin that caused carnage on Lap 1 was the only bit of excitement of the Grand Prix. "But I wasn't", he said.


Six incumbents - Democrats Mike Doyle of Pittsburgh and Brendan Boyle and Dwight Evans of Philadelphia and Republicans Brian Fitzpatrick of Bucks County, Tom Marino of Lycoming County and Lloyd Smucker of Lancaster County - are facing primary challenges. Fifteen Democrats are running for the 5th Congressional District alone.

Under the old map, this was the infamous District 7: the flagrant, "Goofy kicking Donald Duck" gerrymander that tied Democratic-leaning Philadelphia suburbs to heavily Republican Amish country, pulling in pieces of five counties and 26 municipalities along the way.

Republicans held a 13-5 advantage in the delegation after the 2016 election. Goforth is new to the legislature, having won a special election in February to replace former Republican Rep. Marie Rader, who resigned. In the State House, there are 119 Republicans and 81 Democrats, and three vacant seats. Republicans now control the House, 121-82, and the Senate, 36-14.

You can also look at sample ballots.
