(Harrisburg) -- Democrats and Republicans have some important decisions to make in tomorrow's primary election in Pennsylvania.

The statewide ballot features nomination contests for an unprecedented three seats on the state Supreme Court.

Six Democrats and six Republicans are on the ballot.

The three candidates who win the most votes in each party will compete in the November 3rd general election for a 10-year term on the state's highest court.

Also on the statewide ballot are Democratic contests for one open seat each on the Superior and Commonwealth courts, the state's intermediate appellate courts. 

In Reading, one Republican is on the ballot, while Democrats will be choosing from six candidates, including incumbent Vaughn Spencer.

In heavily Democratic Philadelphia, the outcome of a six-way mayoral race will all but decide who leads Pennsylvania's largest city for the next four years.  

The polls open at 7:00 tomorrow morning.
