The League of Women Voters of Pike County will hold its first public, in-person candidate “meet and greet” since the COVID lockdown on Tuesday, Sept, 26, beginning at 7 p.m., at the Blooming Grove Firehall on PA Route 739 in Lords Valley.

Pike County registered voters are invited to interact in a roundtable format with candidates in the County Commissioner race and School Director in the Delaware Valley School District. Members of the local press will also be in attendance.

The League of Women Voters of Pike is focusing on the commissioner race because its final outcome has not yet been determined, as opposed to races where only one candidate will appear on the ballot.

The Delaware Valley School Disrict is the only school district wholly contained within Pike County, and its final outcome has still yet to be determined.

Please register at LWVPike.org/Event Calendar.

Beside the local races in all boroughs and townships in Pike, the 2023 general election ballot will also include four statewide judicial races. Information about the state races is already available at www.vote411.org.

Residents of Shohola and Delaware Townships should also be aware that both have ballot questions regarding the funding for emergency management services.

2023 General Election Voter Guide

The LWV Pike County Voters Guide for the 2023 general municipal election will be published online on Oct. 1. The guide will contain unedited information received from Pike County Commissioner candidates and DV school director candidates appearing on the ballot in November.

The Guide will be available at www.lwvpike.org or on our Facebook page at Facebook/LWVPikePA.

National Voter Registration Day

On Tuesday, Sept. 19, LWV Pike will once again participate in the annual National Voter Registration Day, a nonpartisan civic holiday celebrating our democracy. First observed in 2012, it has quickly gained momentum ever since.

Nearly 4.5 million voters have registered to vote on the holiday to date. LWV Pike will continue the tradition by registering voters both in person and online.

Anyone needing help with registering can contact us for help on Facebook or our contact form at www.lwvpike.org or email us at lwvpikecounty@gmail.com. If you would like to volunteer to help, contact Voters Services Chairperson Carol Comando at the same email address.
