Representative in Harrisburg working on legislation to allow remote voting during COVID-19 outbreak
HARRISBURG – Rep. Rich Irvin (R-Huntingdon/Centre/Mifflin) today announced his district offices in Huntingdon and Port Matilda will not be providing walk-in service until further notice. This change in policy is keeping in line with state government and health officials who have mandated the closure of all non-essential state offices.
“To best ensure the safety of residents and my staff, we will be closing the doors to walk-ins; however, my staff and I will still be able to assist individuals over the phone, by email or through my website,” said Irvin.
The phone numbers for Irvin’s offices are 814-644-2996 in Huntingdon and 814-692-4577 in Port Matilda.
Irvin and his staff can also be reached via email at RIrvin@pahousegop.com or through his website at www.RepIrvin.com.
Irvin spent the day in Harrisburg on Monday, March 16, voting on proposed changes to the House rules to allow remote voting of House members to keep the General Assembly operational.
Last week, Gov. Tom Wolf announced the statewide closure of all K-12 schools and urged the closure of non-essential businesses in affected areas. Additionally, the governor ordered the closure of the state Capitol complex to all visitors, tour groups and non-essential employees. Access is restricted to essential employees with a valid employee badge.
