HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania's primary election was held Tuesday.
The result of the highest-profile contest on the ballot was a foregone conclusion: President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, uncontested for their party's nominations, both won their primary.
The lack of drama in the outcome of the presidential primary and the huge number of voters who opted to vote by mail during the COVID-19 pandemic meant turnout was light. Around 25 percent of registered voters in Franklin County cast ballots, according to the county's website Tuesday night.
There was only one competitive primary among the statewide races: a six-way race in the Democratic primary for auditor general. Candidates in the other two other statewide races on the ballot, attorney general and treasurer, were uncontested.
The primary decides which Republicans and Democrats will appear on the ballot for November's general election.
