Helpful Information on Voter Registration & New Voting Machines
Due to a State mandate, the Bucks County had to switch over to new voting machines with verifiable paper ballots. Those machines have completely replaced our old machines and will be used right away during the April 28, 2020 primary election. The link below to Bucks County's website provides informational flyers and instructional videos on these new voting machines in an effort to assist Bucks County residents. The link also includes a list of public training sites. http://buckscounty.org/…/BoardofEle…/ClearBallot-BucksVoting

Route 13 and Turnpike
PennDOT and Turnpike Engineers met with the Township. They are aware of the congestion due to the construction and have already been working on corrective actions. The issues are mainly from signal timing and single through lanes. The corrective actions they are working for implementation are adjusting the timing of the signal, adding a temporary video detection system, installing GPS clocks for Green Lane and Turnpike signal coordination, redesigning for additional though lane for SB Route 13 and adding green arrow for right turn from SB Route 13. The removal of the bridge deck has begun, then removal of temporary signal C posts, re-do lanes adding the through SB lane and adjust timing for turn lanes.
