MERCER, Pa. (WKBN) – There is a special election happening in Pennsylvania Tuesday and it’s going on as planned.

Mercer County Bureau of Elections Director Jeff Greenburg said the election is underway.

“We have green shamrocks and green doughnuts and polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Our special election is underway. Our polls workes are warriors,” Greenburg said.

Greenburg said results will be posted after the polls close at 8 p.m. The results will only include in-person numbers.
