*The Borough Office is open to customers, using social distancing and masks for in person transactions or meetings.

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the way the League of Women Voters of the Lewisburg Area ( LWVLA) is able to collect and distribute voting information for the General Primary election. For this election only, the LWVLA has decided NOT to create a printed version of the Voters Guide.
Instead of a printed Voters Guide, we have provided a document online in a format similar to our usual printed guide that can be printed at home. Our Voters Guide can be found at: http://lwvlewisburgarea.org/VoterElectionInformation.html.
