Happy Election Day! Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

A lot is on the line today in Philadelphia. By voting, you could help decide whether Donald Trump wins the GOP nomination. Or whether an indicted congressman is rewarded with another term. Or who might succeed the embattled Kathleen Kane as Attorney General.
