The debates, the electioneering and those non-stop TV ads are all coming to an end today.

It's time for the 2014 General Election.

After months of campaigning by candidates of all political stripes, voters will decide a number of races at the local, state and federal level.

In Centre County, all polling places will open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. You won't need an ID to vote unless this is the first time you've voted.

Bad weather can sometimes keep people away from the ballot box but that shouldn't be an issue today. AccuWeather is calling for partly sunny skies and a high of 65 degrees.

In Pennsylvania, one of the most important races is the battle for the governor's office. Gov. Tom Corbett (R) is facing a strong challenge from Tom Wolf (D).

In the 5th Congressional District, Rep. Glenn Thompson (R) is looking to win a fourth term in a race against challenger Kerith Strano Taylor (D).
