Voters in the 35th District will head to the polls Tuesday to elect a new state legislator.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. in Clairton, Duquesne, Lincoln, McKeesport, Munhall, South Versailles Twp., Versailles, Whitaker, White Oak and five neighborhoods of West Mifflin.

Democrat Austin Davis (above left) and Republican Fawn Walker-Montgomery (above right), both of McKeesport, are running in the special election to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of former state Rep. Marc Gergely. Gergely resigned after pleading guilty to criminal conspiracy and violating state election laws for his connection to a video-poker and gambling ring.

Walker-Montgomery is a former two-term McKeesport city councilor, while Davis is executive assistant to Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald.
