Released: November 18, 2021
The Delaware County Board of Elections voted unanimously today to certify the results of the Municipal Election held on November 2, 2021.
Gerald Lawrence, the Board of Elections Chair, and fellow members Ashley Lunkenheimer and John McBlain received the updated Director of Elections report from Jim Allen, discussed matters pertaining to the processing of write-in votes, and reviewed the findings of the bi-partisan 18-member Return Board (responsible for the state-mandated 2% audit of each election) before voting for certification.
As with most elections, the formal vote certified the majority of races from the Nov. 2, 2021 Municipal election, with a small number of exceptions noted.
Four races are the subject of ongoing recounts or litigation. These include the Commissioner race in Upper Chichester (Ward 4), the Mayoral race in Eddystone (both North and South wards), the Judge of Elections race in Darby Borough (Ward/Precinct 3-1), and the ongoing Statewide recount for the office of Judge of the Commonwealth Court.
Unofficial results for the Nov. 2, 2021 Municipal Election and official results for previous elections (through 2008) are available on the Delco Votes! website at delcopa.gov/vote.
