Republican Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick and Democratic challenger Kathy Boockvar are vying to represent the 8th Congressional District, which includes Bucks County and parts of Montgomery County and Northeast Philadelphia.

Fitzpatrick confirmed that he voted for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan this morning, according to Levittown Patch guest editor Tom Sofield. Watch video of Fitzpatrick at the polls in the media section of this article.

Boockvar cast her ballot this morning at Pine Run Community Center in Doylestown. Patch was able to snap photos of her checking in and exiting the voting booth with her daughter, Colette Boockvar Yeager.

Fitzpatrick is a former county commissioner who was first elected in 2004, defeated in 2006, and was re-elected to Congress in 2010. His opponent, Boockvar, is a lawyer from Doylestown.

Recently, the two candidates faced off in a series of three debates, two of which were held in Bucks County.
