HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Voters in Philadelphia and a western Pennsylvania county are heading to the polls to fill three open seats in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.

The three seats up for grabs Tuesday were held most recently by Philadelphia Democrats Cherelle Parker and Louise Williams Bishop, and Westmoreland County Republican Tim Krieger.

Parker was elected to the City Council, Bishop resigned after pleading no contest in a public corruption case and Krieger is now a judge.

The winners will join 118 Republicans and 82 Democrats in the chamber.

A special election for the Delaware County state Senate seat held most recently by Republican Dominic Pileggi will be conducted on April 26, the same day as the primary. Pileggi is also now a judge.

All four races are contested.
