We’re finally here. May 18 is Pennsylvania’s primary Election Day, the day to vote your party for the candidate who will run November’s general election. 

Listen to the story.

For voters who are registered as Democrats or Republicans, there are local races for mayor, school board, judge and other seats. 

The process typically excludes registered Independents and third parties from participating, but not this year. 

Independent voters are eligible to vote only on the four statewide and any local ballot questions.

The polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. for those planning to vote in person. 

For those that have yet to mail in a ballot, a reminder that they must be dropped off before 8 p.m. 

Voters can look up their polling place and drop box locations on VotesPA.com

Visit WLVR.org for information about the candidates and the races. 

If you need voter assistance at the polls in Lehigh County, the Voter Registration Office at 610- 782-3194.

If you need help in Northampton County, call 610-829-6260.
