Released: May 15, 2021
The 2021 Municipal Primary Election scheduled for Tuesday, May 18, features four statewide ballot measures that are up for consideration by all Delaware County registered voters, regardless of party affiliation.
The ballot measures include a statewide referendum titled —
Making Municipal Fire and Emergency Medical Services Companies Eligible for Loans
— and three constitutional amendments that are titled:
Termination or Extension of Disaster Emergency Declarations
Disaster Emergency Declaration and Management
Prohibition Against Denial or Abridgement of Equality of Rights Because of Race or Ethnicity.
All Delaware County voters are eligible to participate in the May 18 Primary. Voters registered with the Republican Party or Democratic Party will qualify for their particular party’s ballot. Voters not registered with a party will receive a third-party (nonpartisan) ballot with only the ballot measures.
To view a sample ballot, inclusive of ballot measures as well as all candidates that will appear on a voter’s particular ballot (based on their party affiliation), voters can visit the Sample Ballots page on the Delco Votes! website at delcopa.gov/sample. The dynamically-generated sample ballots, based on the voter’s street address, can be accessed directly at http://election.co.delaware.pa.us/electionsampleballots/.
