Voters statewide will go to the polls to decide on their parties' candidates for the fall election. And today, there are a number of important choices to be made on each party's ballot.

Voters head to the polls on Tuesday in crucial party primaries in Pennsylvania, a state that has become central to Democrats' hopes of retaking control of the U.S. House of Representatives.

In the 11th District, incumbent Rep. Lloyd Smucker faces another GOP challenger and county commissioner Doug McLinko faces incumbent Rep. Tom Marino in the 12th. Republicans in the new 9th Congressional District, which includes Montour County and the eastern portion of Northumberland County, will select Dan Meuser of Luzerne County, George Halcovage of Schuylkill County or Scott C. Uehlinger of Berks County, has their nominee. Two Democratic candidates, moderate former U.S. Representative Brad Ashford and progressive Kara Eastman, are battling to take on Republican Representative Don Bacon in an Omaha-area district Democrats believe they can win.

And let's not forget the highest office in Pennsylvania.

Other Republicans hoping to challenge ballot Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf in the November election are Scott Wagner, state senator from York County; and Laura Ellsworth, a commercial litigation attorney and former chairwoman of the Greater Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce. About a quarter of the Jefferson County ballots were in, as of early Tuesday. State senate and state House seats are also up for grabs, but numerous candidates running for these seats, at least in the Lehigh Valley, are unopposed in their primary bids.

Despite all that, interest in the primary election is low, with 23 percent of ballots returned so far, according to the Oregon Elections Division, including almost 30 percent in Crook County, almost 28 percent in Deschutes and more than 26 percent in Jefferson, according to Tuesday morning's statewide ballot tally.

Ballots are due by 8 p.m. Tuesday and postmarks don't count.
