Pennsylvania polls for the presidential primary closed Tuesday night, June 2. Counties were hit by a surge of mail-in votes this year. As WLVR’s Tyler Pratt reports, Northampton County ballots have been tallied, but Lehigh County is still counting.

The Associated Press has named Lisa Scheller the winner in the Republican primary race for the Lehigh Valley’s 7th congressional district. The GOP nominee will face incumbent Democrat Susan Wild for the seat in November.

WLVR’s Stephen Jiwanmall spoke with Borick as part of PBS39’s Primary 2020 special election coverage about what made this year unique – and what the results may suggest for November.

For most of Pennsylvania, the 2020 presidential primary is over. A handful of counties were granted extensions due to surges in mail in ballots and civil disturbances.

Lehigh County sent out nearly 48-thousand mail-in ballots for this year’s primary election–more than election officials have ever tried to count on Election Day.
