All Fountain Hill Voters Will Have New Polling Places June 2

Although Pennsylvania officials have strongly encouraged residents to vote by mail in the upcoming primary election because of the coronavirus pandemic, many people plan to vote in person June 2, and in some cases that will mean traveling to a new polling place.

As a result of the new universal option to vote by mail in Pennsylvania, county officials have consolidated many local polling stations, particularly in Lehigh County. State Sen. Lisa Boscola (D-18) highlighted the changes to polling places in an email bulletin to constituents Tuesday.

In Fountain Hill, Lehigh County, all registered voters will have new polling places for the June 2 election.

Residents of the borough’s first district who formerly voted at St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church on Delaware Avenue will now vote at Epic Church, 1205 Broadway.

Primary Election Polling Place Fountain Hill

A new polling place in Fountain Hill, Lehigh County, is Epic Church, 1205 Broadway. Residents of the 1st District who previously voted at St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church will vote at Epic Church in the June 2 primary election.

Residents of Fountain Hill’s second and third districts will vote at the Fountain Hill Volunteer Fire Company, 950 Cherokee Street, instead of the Lehigh County Housing Authority-owned Clarence Aungst Towers high-rise at 1101 Seneca Street.

In adjacent Salisbury Township, Lehigh County, residents of the second ward will now vote at the Salisbury Township Administration Building, 2900 S. Pike Ave., Allentown, instead of Eastern Salisbury Fire & Rescue.

Boscola’s email noted that “as determined by the Board of Elections, while there is one location listed, sites may include multiple polling places within that location so that physical distancing and other mitigation measures may be followed on Election Day.”

The two polling places that have changed in Northampton County are one at Gracedale in Upper Nazareth Township, which is being moved next door to a hangar behind the Northampton County 911 Center, and one at Lehigh University’s Zoellner Arts Center in Bethlehem that is being moved to the Banana Factory, 25 W. Third St., Bethlehem.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on primary election day.
