Sunbury, Northumberland Co. — Pennsylvania state Senate District 27 is holding a Special Election on January 31st after John Gordner’s resigning.
This area includes Columbia, Northumberland, Montour, and Snyder Counties with part of Luzerne.
The Northumberland Board of elections got the ballots for mail in voters today and were preparing to send them out tomorrow.
"Just like every other election, the voters have the option to apply for absentee or mail-in ballots," said Nathan Savidge, the Northumberland County Administrator & Chief Clerk. "So what we did as a county, we took all the applications and labels for the voters, put them together into packets. Now we expedited our ballots today so they just arrived and now we're just throwing the ballots in. The packets will go out to the voters tomorrow to vote on."
Savidge expects thousands more to apply for mail-in and absentee ballots starting tomorrow.
