| Wednesday, May 8, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

Here is a look at the May 21 primary across the Sewickley Valley.

Pennsylvania operates a closed primary, which means voters must be a member of a candidate's party to select that candidate. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Those voting for the first time must present an approved form of identification at the polls, including a driver's license, student ID or government ID.
