The polls are now closed in Pennsylvania's primary election and now the counting begins.

Most of Wednesday's balloting was by Democrats and Republicans to choose nominees for the Nov. 5 general election. Officials said turnout was around 20 percent.

The biggest races include contested mayoral nominations in Pittsburgh, Scranton, Harrisburg and York, as well as a three-way Democratic primary for Philadelphia city controller.

The only statewide contest is for the Democratic nomination for an open seat on the state Superior Court. The candidates are Allegheny County Judge Jack McVay and Philadelphia Municipal Court Judge Joseph C. Waters.
