CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Tuesday's voter turnout in Franklin County, Pa., started stronger in Chambersburg than the southern portion of the county, officials said.
That partially could be attributed to the Chambersburg mayoral race between Democrat Peter Lagiovane and Republican Robert B. Wollyung, Deputy Chief Clerk Jean Byers said.
Voters had to be in line at the polls by 8 p.m. to cast a vote in the municipal election.
With all of the county's 74 precincts reporting Tuesday night, 26 percent of the county's 83,930 registered voters had cast ballots, according to unofficial election results.
In Chambersburg's Precinct 2-2, poll worker Peg Hollar said she saw no negative effect on voter turnout from moving the polling place from Andrew Buchanan Elementary School to the Chambersburg Area School District administrative building.
