Mail-In Ballot Reminder

Delaware County Public Relations

The Delaware County Bureau of Elections has completed mailing more than 50,000 vote-by-mail ballots, including mail-in and absentee ballots. The deadline to apply for a Vote-by-Mail ballot is Nov. 1.

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:

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

Ballot Return Envelopes can be returned to any drop box location. The complete list of sites, including hours of operation, are available at Voters can also return their completed ballots through the US Postal Service. If using the US Postal Service, voters are encouraged to use the drop-offs inside the lobby of a local post office.

Voters may verify the status of their ballot on the PA Department of State website at If a voter needs help or information he or she can call the Delaware County Election Hotline at (610) 891-VOTE (8683).
