Most people vote in municipal elections to have a voice in choosing the next mayor or council member. If you’re living in Shamokin, throw all of that out the window during the primary election on May 18.

While there are two open seats on city council and an open seat for mayor that will appear on the ballot, both primary races are uncontested and are expected to have very little impact on what the general election ballot looks like in November.
