Many races but low turnout expected

May 15, 2017 - 8:50 am

Today is Primary Election Day.  Polls are open until 8pm. Election watchers say they expect a low turnout despite some races heavy with candidates. That includes the Magisterial District Judge seat in several areas. In Mountain Top and in the Shickshinny areas 6 candidates are running, in the Back Mountain it's 4.  School Board races, Luzerne County Council, Scranton City Council and the Lackawanna County race for District Attorney have also generated interest.  You'll hear your vote counted here on WILK after the polls close. If you have problems at the polls call in Lackwanna County  570-963-6737   Luzerne County  570 825-1715
