mail-in ballots

A state court recently ordered the ballots to be tallied. Still other justices disagree on the matter.

The ruling could impact the race between Lehigh County judicial candidates Republican David Ritter and Democrat Zachary Cohen.

An overwhelming number of mail-in ballot requests statewide and locally come from registered Democrats.

Voters have until 5 p.m. to apply for a mail-in ballot. The election is May 17.

Acting Secretary of the Commonwealth Leigh Chapman warns the move may have a ‘chilling effect’ on voters.
