HONESDALE, PA — On Thursday, May 7, Wayne County Bureau of Elections Director Cindy Furman announced three polling place changes for the June 2 primary election this year. The changes have been made to protect vulnerable populations from COVID-19.
Dyberry Township voters will go to the Wayne County Fairgrounds to cast ballots instead of Bethany Village Senior Living Community.
Mount Pleasant Township residents will go to the Mount Pleasant Township Municipal Building rather than the Mount Pleasant Public Library.
Prompton Borough residents will be voting at the Seelyville Fire Hall in Texas Township.
Furman said that she doesn't expect any further polling place changes for the June 2 primary. The bureau has been looking into purchasing Plexiglass dividers to keep poll workers and voters separated. It has also received protection kits from the PA Department of State.

Here's how to apply for a mail-in ballot:
