(Harrisburg) -- When the state Supreme Court redrew Pennsylvania's congressional district map, fewer municipalities were fragmented than before.

But some towns in the midstate ended up freshly divided by the new map.

Voters in North Middleton Township, Cumberland County are now split between two congressional districts--the 10th and the 13th.

Communications director Rachel Bryson said this is a new issue for the county.

"We've actually never had a situation where a congressional district has been split within a precinct," she said.

The change affects people who vote at North Middleton Fire Company No. 1 and No. 2.

Bryson said the county's bureau of elections worked to make the check-in process for those voters as clear as possible.

"When our North Middleton voters walk in the door, they'll be asked to provide their name and, based on which congressional district they are in, we'll place them in the correct voting line," Bryson said.

 After that, it's voting as usual.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on May 15th.
