Delaware County Elections Opens Ballot Drop Boxes

 Home / Elections / Elections News / Delaware County Elections Opens Ballot Drop Boxes

Delaware County Elections has opened more than three dozen ballot drop box sites as of Friday, October 21. The majority of these sites are open 24/7, with limited exceptions.

Delaware County voters can use any Delaware County ballot drop box. No postage is required.

Delaware County Elections reminds voters to properly mark, seal, and return the vote-by-mail ballot to ensure that the ballot can be counted.

Voters must:

Place the marked ballot in the white ‘Secrecy Envelope’ provided with their ballot (this envelope, per State Law, is marked “Official Ballot Envelope”).
Seal the Secrecy Envelope.
Place the sealed Secrecy Envelope into the Ballot Return Envelope.
Seal the Ballot Return Envelope.
Sign the declaration (on the back of the Ballot Return Envelope).
Enter the date where indicated (on the back of the Ballot Return Envelope).
Return the sealed Ballot Return Envelope.

Voters must return only their own ballot. The only exception is to assist a disabled voter or an emergency absentee voter, which requires a declaration form signed by the voter and by the person returning the ballot. This form is available on the Delco Votes! website at

If a voter needs help or information on paperwork for assisting a disabled voter—or if a mistake is made in completing and sealing the ballot—voters may call the Delaware County Election Hotline at (610) 891-VOTE (8683). Voters may also visit the Delaware County Voter Service Center in Media to receive a replacement ballot and envelopes.

Please visit the Ballot Drop Box Locations web page for details.
