New Maps

The new legislative maps are now available.

You can download a PDF of Lackawanna County's districts here.

You will quickly notice that we now have five legislative districts.  They are the 112th, 113th, 114th, 117th, and 118th.  We lost the 115th District to Monroe County and picked up two new districts - the 117th and 118th.

The 117th Legislative District Representative is Republican Karen Boback.  You can view her campaign website here.

Karen has agreed to speak at our Fall Dinner.  We hope you will join us!

Absentee Voting

Our busy schedules make it difficult to vote in every election. Sometimes, our work schedules don't allow it. Other times, we might be sick, have a loved one who is ill, or maybe we cannot physically make it to the polls.

Whatever the reason is, I thought I would take a minute to make sure you are aware of another way to vote, other than appearing in person…absentee voting.

If you are unable to make it to the polls due to illness, travel, or many other reasons you can vote by mail with an absentee ballot.  It is a very simple two-step process.  First, you must send in a request for a ballot to the County Board of Elections in time for them to receive it by October 29th (you can download a form here.)  The county will then process your request and reserve a ballot for you.

A few week before the election, they will you mail you a ballot.  Once you receive it, you simply fill out your ballot and mail it back in so that the Board of Election receives it prior to November 1st.  They will then send your ballot to your polling location and count it on election night.

Absentee voting is a very easy process and, if your situation requires it, I would like to encourage you to use it.

Your vote is critical to the success of many candidates this year.

If you can make it to the polls but are unsure of where to vote, you can call Lackawanna County Voter Services at (570) 963-6737 and they will be able to look you up and tell you exactly where your polling place is.  You can also visit to find your polling place.

Thank you for your time, consideration, and for being a Republican.

Lance Stange, Jr.

P.S. If you cannot make it to the polls, mail your absentee application to:
Lackawanna County Voter Services
P.O. Box 4524
Scranton, PA 18505-6524
