Monday is Deadline to Register to Vote in May 17 Primary

Who will you choose for your school board, municipal leaders, county government?

Monday, April 18 is the deadline to register to vote in the May 17 primary, which features local races for seats on public school boards - the primary taxing body for Pennsylvania property owners. 

Lehigh and Northampton county Democrats and Republicans will also be choosing their candidates for municipal offices, county commissioner and, in some cases, magisterial district justice and county judge.

 Primary elections in Pennsylvania are “closed,” meaning only voters registered in one of the two major parties can cast their ballot for candidates. Voters registered as Independent can only vote on ballot questions or in the case of a special election held in conjunction with the primary.

 Pennsylvania residents have until the close of business on April 18 to register to vote, change their political party affiliation or notify voter registration of a change in address.

Lehigh County Voter Registration is located in the county government center, 17 S. Seventh St., Allentown and is open weekdays 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Phone: 610-782-3194

In Upper Macungie, Upper Macungie Supervisor, Parkland School Board and Magisterial District Judge seats are up for grabs. The candidates for these seats drew ballots on March 15.

The primary is May 17.
