COVID19 Changes for Primary Election Cause Some Confusion among Lehigh County Voters

Wear a mask, keep a safe distance and bring your own pen. These are some of the changes Pennsylvania voters experienced casting their ballots today.

But WLVR’s KC Lopez reports, there has been some confusion in the Lehigh Valley as voters hit the polls.

In Lehigh County, COVID-19 closures caused polling location changes that led to confusion for some voters. Doug Albert from Schnecksville drove over twenty minutes from his regular polling place to physically submit his mail in ballot at the county government center in Allentown.

“We went up to our polling place and they said you have to drop them off in person so that’s why I’m here,” said Albert.

Poll workers in Allentown say they’ve had a handful of voters arrive at the wrong polling station only to be redirected. Neighboring Northampton County has seen only two polling location changes, compared to Lehigh county’s more than 20.
