The Allegheny County Elections Division will remain open until 7:00 p.m. to take any last minute registration forms. Besides the Presidential election, there are countless state house and senate races, U.S. Rep. and Senate races and several statewide offices up for grabs, including a hotly contested race for Attorney General. Democrat Kathleen Kane is hoping to become the first Democrat ever to hold that office.
