HONESDALE (Oct. 7, 2020) – The Wayne County Bureau of Elections has made four changes to voting locations for the Nov. 3 General Election for those who wish to cast their ballots in person at the polls.

On Thursday, the County Commissioners, as the Board of Elections, approved the PA Game Commission Garage at 2263 Great Bend Turnpike, Honesdale, at the polling location for voters in Lebanon Township. It had been held at the Rileyville Community Assocation just down the road. Signs will be posted at the former location, and the arrangement is expected to be long term.

Voters in the Damascus 2 will go to the Calkins Baptist Church at 527 Calkins Road, Milanville, to cast their ballots. The polling place had previously been located at the Labor Grange Hall nearby.  This change is expected to be long term as well.

In Dyberry Township, voters will cast ballots at the Bethany United Methodist Church at 3 Court Street, Bethany for the Nov. 3 General Election. This polling location has been temporarily moved from the Bethany Village Assisted Living Facility in light of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Finally, the Mount Pleasant Municipal Building at 128 Pleasant View, Pleasant Mount, will host Mount Pleasant Township voters for the General Election. This change, from the Pleasant Mount Public Library, will remain in effect until a change is required in the future.

All other polling locations will be open on Election Day November 3 from 7 am to 8 pm. Locate your your polling location here,
