ALLEGHENY COUNTY (KDKA) — As polls prepared to open in Pennsylvania, voters in Allegheny County lined up early to cast their ballots.

Voters told KDKA’s Lindsay Ward they anticipated long lines and thought it was best to show up as early as possible.

They also say they wanted to get in and out quickly.

Others said they didn’t trust the mail-in voting process and felt by voting in person, their ballot would be safer.

Voters in Robinson Township lined up around 6:45 a.m. as well.
