Delaware County Public Relations Office
Delaware County Primary Election is May 16. The deadline to register to vote — for first-time voters and those who need to update addresses, names, or party affiliations — is Monday, May 1. The deadline for voters to apply for a Vote-by-Mail ballot is Tuesday, May 9. Election Day is Tuesday, May 16, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. (which is also the cut-off for the County to receive civilian mail-in ballots).
In most areas, only voters registered with the Democratic or Republican parties will be eligible to vote in the Primary Election. Independent and third-party voters will be able to participate only in the two areas with Special Elections: the 163rd State Representative District and Radnor Township Ward 4.
Due to vacancies in office, voters in the 163rd State Representative District will be electing a new House Representative, and voters in Radnor Township’s 4th Ward (Precincts 1 and 2), will be electing a new Township Commissioner. In both special elections, voters should be aware that the winning candidates will take office shortly after the election.
