The only locally contested races are in the Republican primary.  Both parties have contested statewide  races, however.

Early voting continues through Friday from 8am to 5pm at the Washington County Courthouse annex.

Election day is Tuesday from 7am to 7pm.  Rothermel says they will have 15 polling sites open and to find where you need to vote, check your orange voter registration card.
