NorCo Civil Division Swamped by Passport Applications
What complicates things for Civil Division employees is that, on Mondays and Fridays, there is often a rush of people filling out applications.. Some post offices will process applications, but many of them insist on appointments.
In Lehigh County, which also processes passport applications, they are only accepted between 9 am and 3 pm.
What is happening in Northampton County is similar to what is going on in, of all places, Lamesa, Texas. The Clerk's office there is also experiencing a dramatic increase, largely because the post offices are booked through July.
