Mail-in ballot problem in Luzerne County special election --305 voters may not have received their mail-in ballot in time to vote by mail. | 4 April 2022 | (Luzerne County, Pa.) There is a special election Tuesday in the 116th Legislative District. The seat was left empty after State Representative Tarah Toohil was elected Judge for the Court of Common Pleas in Luzerne County. Now three candidates are hoping for the seat for a short, 8-month term. About 10 percent of voters for this special election who requested mail-in ballots may not have received them in time because of what election officials are calling an error made by the Pennsylvania Department of State. Three hundred and five voters who requested a mail-in ballot were affected. Some are not getting their ballot until Friday, if at all.
