HARRISBURG (AP) -

The Latest on Pennsylvania primary contests for the state's appeals courts Tuesday (all times local):

11:30 p.m.

Pennsylvania primary voters have picked nominees for four open seats on the state's appellate-level Superior Court. Democrats also picked two nominees in a big field for two open seats on Commonwealth Court. The races made up the only statewide contests on the primary ballot.

Democrats picked Philadelphia judges Carolyn Nichols and Maria McLaughlin, Beaver County Judge Deborah Anne Kunselman and Superior Court Judge Geoff Moulton for four open seats on Superior Court. Moulton is trying to retain the position to which he was appointed last year.

Republicans picked Blair County Judge Wade Kagarise, Lancaster County District Attorney Craig Stedman, Northampton County Judge Emil Giordano and Mary Murray, a district judge in Allegheny County.

Each party had five contestants on the ballot.

Meanwhile, Democrats picked Philadelphia Judge Ellen Ceisler and Pittsburgh attorney Irene Clark for two open seats on Commonwealth Court.

Meanwhile, Democrats picked Philadelphia Judge Ellen Ceisler for one of two open seats on Commonwealth Court. One other Democratic nominee was being decided from a field of five other candidates.

3 p.m.

Pennsylvania primary voters are picking candidates for open seats on the state's appeals courts, races that make up the only statewide contests on the primary ballot this year.

There are 18 people running for Superior Court and Commonwealth Court in Tuesday's primaries, while the two major parties each have a single candidate for an opening on the Supreme Court.

Five Democrats and five Republicans are competing for four nominations to serve on Superior Court. It's a busy mid-level appeals court that takes criminal, civil and family court appeals from counties.

For Commonwealth Court, which handles matters in which government agencies are a party, Republicans have two people seeking for two openings so they will almost certainly be the GOP candidates this fall.

Democrats have six candidates seeking the two nominations.
