Delaware County’s Provisional Ballot Challenge Hearing to be Held Nov. 13

 Home / Elections / Elections News / Delaware County’s Provisional Ballot Challenge Hearing to be Held Nov. 13

The Delaware County Board of Elections has scheduled a special meeting to hear challenges to over 1,700 provisional ballots cast in the November 3, 2020 General Election.

These legal challenges seek to disqualify ballots, often based on procedural errors.

The Delaware County Board of Elections has a legal obligation to attempt to notify all voters whose provisional ballot is subject to disqualification. The Board is sending priority overnight letters to these voters and is also publishing the complete alphabetical list here:
