HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A primary election like none other in state history awaits Pennsylvania voters Tuesday.

That's when those who haven't contributed to the flood of mail-in ballots may encounter new machines designed to improve security by creating a paper record.

Polling places in some counties have been moved or consolidated to cope with a pandemic-driven drop in election workers, and special social distancing rules will be in place. The result of the highest profile contests on the ballot are a foregone conclusion.

President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden are the presumptive major-party nominees. The only statewide races are for the “row offices” — attorney general, auditor general and treasurer.
