  1. I applied for an absentee or mail in ballot but have not received my ballot yet, when should I expect it?

Answer:  The Bureau of Elections is processing all applications.  Ballots may not be issued until a certification is received from the Pennsylvania Secretary of State and until all court issues are resolved.  Currently, several cases still before state Courts may affect the Delaware County ballot.  Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 virus we are not sure of an exact mail out date.  However, regardless of the status of court challenges, absentee and mail-in ballots will go out not later than two weeks prior to the date of the Primary Election (i.e., by May 19 for a Primary on June 2). You may call the Bureau to verify we received your application and when the ballot will be mailed or check on our website for updates.  We will post a notice on the web site when ballots begin mailing. 

  1. I need to file a campaign finance report, but the County building is closed to the public, what can I do to complete the filing?

Answer:  PA law allows filers of campaign finance reports to mail reports to the supervising office/s and they will be considered timely if they are post marked the day prior to the deadline to file.  Also, due to current circumstances regarding COVID-19, if reports are filed late in the Delaware County Bureau of Elections, the Board of Elections has agreed to take into consideration the specific circumstances prior to issuing late fees. 

  1. I filed a petition to fill a vacancy on my District Election Board (poll worker), I have not received notice if the Court approved my filing?

Answer:  Due to current circumstances regarding COVID-19 the Courts are limited in the matters they may hear.  All petitions to fill board vacancies will be addressed once the Courts are reopened for business as usual.  If necessary, the Board of Elections may emergency appoint the filer, allowing them to serve for the 2020 Primary.
