Vote-By-Mail Update and Ballot Return Options

Chester County Voter Services is working every day, including weekends, to process mail-in ballot applications and return them to applicants. The Mail-house has all the ballots ready to go to the postmasters. But due to the Holiday Week-End that cannot happen until Tuesday, May 26th.

Voters should receive their ballots but may not have time to return them via mail. Therefore, it is advised that voters who receive ballots after Tuesday drop them at Voter Services which is open 24/7. Chester County mail-in ballots can be dropped off at the Government Services Center, 601 Westtown Rd, West Chester, 24/7 at the main entrance up until 8:00 PM on the day of the election (June 2). If you drop off outside of regular business hours, please buzz at the door and the guard will let you in. This is the only location where Chester County mail-in ballots can be dropped off. Only the voter can drop their ballot. It is not permitted for a voter to drop off their child’s ballot or their spouse’s ballot.

A second option. If you have applied for a mail-in ballot and have not yet received the ballot, please provide information in the form at and Voter Services will reply with the details of the status of your application.  (Note that a link to this form is also available on the Voter Services web page.) The Voter Services employee can also arrange for the voter to come to Voter Services. Voter Services is open the entire week-end. A new ballot will be printed and an employee will bring it to the car. The voter can fill out the ballot and vote then.

New Drop Box Locations Announced

Total of six secure ballot drop-off locations available throughout the county on
Monday, June 1st and Tuesday, June 2nd

The Chester County Board of Elections approved today the addition of five secure drop-off locations for mail-in and absentee ballots for the 2020 Primary Election.

The five new drop-off locations are added to the drop-off location already established at the Chester County Government Services Center in West Chester. Each drop-off location contains a locked, tamper-proof drop box which is guarded and will not be left unattended at any time.
