(Harrisburg) -- Pennsylvanians have one day left to register to vote in time to cast ballots in next month's primary election.

The voter registration deadline is today, with the statewide primary slated for May 21. Applications can be filled out at county board of election offices, post offices, state liquor stores and library branches, as well as online.

The election will feature battles over Democratic nominations for an open seat on the statewide appellate bench. There are also mayor's races in Harrisburg Pittsburgh and Scranton. Voters across the state also will be choosing nominees for local judgeships, municipal offices and school boards.

Property taxes, road repairs, schools and other local concerns are likely to drive turnout more in some areas than others.
