ALLENTOWN, Pa. – The primary election will be held on May 17 and the results will determine who heads to November’s General Election.

Polls will be open throughout the valley for in-person voting from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Listen to the story.

All voters will be able to select a candidate from their registered political party to run for United States Senator, governor and lieutenant governor.

Voters will also be able to choose a candidate to represent the state’s 7th Congressional district, as well as their state senators and reps running for seats in Harrisburg.

If you have registered to vote, the location of your polling place should be listed on your Voter Registration ID. 

Voter registration and mail-in application deadlines have closed. 

Residents who requested a mail-in ballot can deliver it at dropbox or a mailbox – as long as the county election board gets it by 8 pm on Election Day.
