Polls are open in Bucks County as voters decide on their nominees for the November General Election.
While the presidential candidates seem set, seats for U.S. Congress and the Pennsylvania General Assembly are up for grabs.
Republican voters are deciding between Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick and Andy Meehan, who is president of his own investment advisory firm.
Democrats will choose either Christina Finello, who works in the Bucks County Department of Housing and Human Services, or business owner Skylar Hurwitz.
Other options on the ballot are state positions including attorney general, auditor general, and treasurer. Depending on districts, voters will deciding on their nominee for state Senate.
Nearly 100,000 Bucks County voters have applied for mail-in or absentee ballots. Anyone who has a mail-in ballot still can drop it off at the Lower Bucks Government Services Center located at 7321 New Falls Road in Levittown before 6 p.m.
But many are still headed to polling locations to vote in person. Those who do should know masks are heavily encouraged, and anyone who does not wear one could be delayed in casting their vote.
Additionally, voters will be using the new Real Clear Ballot system. County officials have warned the new system could have delayed results.
Polls close at 8 p.m
Lower Makefield voters also have a unique decision to make at the polls today. They will be choosing whether to lift a ban on alcohol sales within their township.
If Lower Makefield voters decide to end their run as a “dry” municipality, the township would have about 11 liquor licenses to work with based on population.
These would go to restaurants like DeLorenzo’s Tomato Pies or grocery stores like McCaffery’s Food Markets.
The current ban has been in place since the late 1940s. The referendum only needs a simple majority to lift the ban.
