The last-minute presidential recount effort spearheaded by Green Party candidate Jill Stein is more complicated in Pennsylvania than in most states. In Pennsylvania, three voters from each precinct must file a notarized affidavit asking for the recount. 

Jamie Brenner is one of those who waited in line at the Centre County Elections Office in Bellefonte to submit affidavits. She voted for Hillary Clinton and heard about the recount effort on Facebook.

Municipal and judicial primary elections are coming up Tuesday, May 19. Voter turn out for these elections is generally low. Around 15 to 20 percent of registered voters are expected to show up to choose candidates for positions like sheriff or school board director.

Centre County Elections Director Joyce McKinley says there are two particularly interesting contests in Centre County this year.

“It’s on the Republican ballot, the Register of Wills and the Sheriff,” McKinley said.

There are two Republican candidates for each of those positions.
