A dark Tuesday morning started this Election Day at the Bethel Park Fire Company.
People were out when the polls opened at 7 a.m., and by 10:30 a.m. more were filing in.
Sharron Janoski a Bethel Park resident was giving out information on the candidates outside the fire hall this morning. She says she votes every election and makes sure friends and family do too.
Earlier in the day, Janoski met a 60-year-old woman who was only voting for the second time in her life. Janoski wants to see a change amongst people after the midterm election.
“We need tolerance and more kindness,” Janoski said.
In the early morning, a majority of people were older citizens. A poll worker said they already had some young people come to vote, but more will come when school and work let out.
Poll workers said that most voters tend to “ show up later, after work.”
The polls are open until 8 p.m.
