Today is Tuesday, May 17 and that means it is primary election day here in Pittsburgh.
The polls are open from 7am-8pm.
Who Should I Vote For?
The folks at Progress Pittsburgh have put together a big table with candidates for most of the city and county races that includes information about which candidates have been endorsed by the Post-Gazette, Planned Parenthood, P2pac, Allegheny County Democratic Committee and other groups. The table also includes links for more info on each of the candidates.
