(Harrisburg) -- A small turnout is anticipated as Pennsylvania voters elect a new judge to the state Superior Court and fill numerous local offices and judgeships.

The Superior Court contest is the only statewide race in Tuesday's election, although voters in communities including Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, Scranton and Lancaster are electing mayors.

Political observers predict a turnout as low as 20 percent.

In the appeals court race, a state bar panel Friday asked Republican candidate Vic Stabile to take down what it considers a misleading ad that implies nepotism was involved in the hiring of Democrat Jack McVay's fiancee and sister-in-law by the Allegheny County court. McVay, an Allegheny County judge, says that's not true.

Stabile, a Harrisburg lawyer, insists it is and confirmed Monday that the ad is still on the air.
