Election Day

At the Lehigh County Government Center, the hub for election results in Lehigh County, there wasn’t as much foot traffic inside the actual polling room on the main floor.

Election Day is here and polls are open for in-person voting from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

About 60 percent of the 28,000 mail-in ballots requested have been returned so far, officials say.

Mail-in ballot counting kicked off in Lehigh County this morning just before 9 a.m. WLVR’s Tyler Pratt was there, along with poll watchers as the first ballots were opened and the first “naked ballots” were found.

Early voting is already underway in Pennsylvania with less than three weeks to go before Election day. And as WLVR’s Ben Stemrich reports, community activists held a special event in Allentown yesterday to register new voters…and encourage residents to cast their ballots.
