WARREN, Pa. – It’s election day across the country, and voters in Warren County were out bright and early to get to the polls.

Tuesday’s general election races across the commonwealth include the Governor’s race featuring Democrat Josh Shapiro and Republican Doug Mastriano, as well as the Senate race headlined by Democrat John Fetterman and Republican Mehmet Oz.

The Salvation Army served as the polling location for City of Warren Residents West and South, and, despite light turnout around noon, poll workers noted a steady stream of voters throughout the early part of the day.

“We’ve been pretty steady since the polls opened at 7,” they said.

More than 500 voters had cast their ballot at Holy Redeemer (Warren North, East, and Southeast) as of 10:30 a.m.

“We’re doing pretty well,” Warren North Judge of Electors Earl Keeney, Jr. said. “We were busy this morning, will be again at lunch, and from 4 – 7 p.m. we’ll be pretty busy.”

Keeney said that while there weren’t lines out the door at the polling station, the number of people coming in to vote had “been constant.”

Also on the ballot is the 15th Congressional District race between incumbent Republican Glenn “GT” Thompson and Democrat Mike Molesevich. Republican Kathy Rapp (65th Legislative District) is running unopposed.

One thing Keeney said that might help turnout was that schools were closed within the Warren County School District today.

“If someone is 18 and registered, they can come in and vote anytime,” Keeney said.

Polls will remain open until 8 p.m., and anyone who is in line at that time will be able to cast their ballot.
