Luzerne County has not certified election results, board to hold special meeting

The Luzerne County Board of Elections will try again to certify the results of the 2022 general election.

The board has called a special meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 30, to vote on certifying the election results. The board’s initial vote on Monday, Nov. 28, ended in a tie and could not pass.

Monday was the statewide deadline to certify election results.

Luzerne County's general election has been under scrutiny after polling places across the county ran out of paper used to print ballots on election day.

The Luzerne County district attorney is investigating the paper shortage.

The meeting is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Wednesday in the County Council Meeting Room at the Luzerne County Courthouse.
