On Tuesday, May 17, Delaware County held a successful 2022 primary election with nearly 120,000 Delaware County registered voters participating across all 49 municipalities.
Republican and Democratic candidates vied for their party’s nomination for several state-wide races, including contests for the US Senate, Pennsylvania Governor and Lt. Governor, and hundreds of additional races at the local level, including Congressional Representatives, State Representatives, State Party Committee members, and, in the Democratic primary, local committee persons.
In all, approximately 30,000 vote-by-mail ballots have been processed, with approximately 90,000 Election Day ballots completed in-person at the polling places.
Delaware County Elections has tabulated all Election Day and mail-in ballots, which can be viewed on the Election Results web page. The process will continue with small numbers of military and overseas ballots and provisional ballots scheduled to be added to the counts on May 26.
“We had good turnout, and we are extremely gratified by the overall performance of the staff, poll workers, and volunteers who worked together to make this a smooth experience for most all of our stakeholders, especially the voters,” said Delaware County Director of Elections Operations James Allen. “We prepared for months to deliver changes and upgrades based on the feedback we received from voters, our poll workers, the Board of Elections, and the political parties. That is how our election team strives every election to improve our ‘customer service.’ ”
Delaware County Elections will continue to post unofficial updates to the Delco Votes! website as the remaining ballots are adjudicated.
