A version of the printed Voters Guide to the 2021 Pennsylvania Municipal Primary is available for you to scroll through on the Morning Call website. This non-partisan Guide is for voters in Lehigh and Northampton counties. You are also welcome to view the same Voters Guide 2021 Municipal Primary in PDF format.
Just in time for voting the Municipal Primary on May 18: Do you know the responsibilities of our County Elected Officials?
We thank the The Morning Call for continuing to support our non-partisan, twice yearly Voters Guide. We also appreciate our local volunteers’ role in this effort. Michelle Graupner, our Editor, Voters Guide 2021, for working with the LWVPA and The Morning Call to compile the Guide for races in Lehigh County. Michelle’s counterpart in the LWV of Northampton County did the same for races located in that county.
The newspaper gave both local Leagues hundreds of extra copies to distribute around their respective counties to the benefit of the voting public. Charles and Donna Barker, volunteers from our local League, delivered them to many locations in that county starting with the Allentown Public Library. This main library made sure all public libraries in the county received copies. Students at LCCC Allentown at the Donley Center, Cedar Crest College, DeSales University and Muhlenberg College have access to copies. Residents of Phoebe Allentown Health Care Center, Gross Towers Senior Community Center, Luther Crest Senior Living Community, Sacred Heart Senior Living and Cedar Village Apartments also benefit. PA CareerLink® Lehigh Valley, the Allentown YMCA and the Jewish Community Center can make copies available to clients and members. Finally, the Voter Registration Office received copies.
LWVLC President Molly Faust submitted a letter to the editor of The Morning Call to explain why our Guide available for the PA General Election 2020 had so many ‘no response’ answers. The letter that appeared in the October 20 edition describes the process we follow to collate the candidate information. Here is the letter we submitted to the newspaper in PDF format.
