Ballot Drop Boxes: A Closer Look

All voted ballots must be enclosed in the secrecy envelope provided to you, sealed, and placed in the larger return envelope. The return envelope MUST be signed. If the ballot is not placed in the secrecy envelope or sealed properly, or the return envelope is not signed and sealed, the vote will not be counted.

Note: Return of a ballot by anyone other than the voter is prohibited unless the person returning the ballot is rendering assistance to a disabled voter or an emergency absentee voter. Such assistance requires a declaration signed by the voter and by the person rendering assistance. This form is listed below. It can be submitted in-person at a Voter Service Center or mailed to Delaware County Bureau of Elections, 2501 Seaport Dr. Suite BH120 Chester, PA 19013.
