Everything You Need To Know For Election Day

In less than thirty-six hours, the polls will open for the biggest election of many of our lifetimes. Over 20% of Chester County’s registered voters have already voted by mail — over 77,000 mail ballots are in. If you’ve already voted by mail, congratulations! And if you’ll be going to the polls in person Tuesday, here’s everything you need to know.

General Information:

Date: Election Day is November 3rd
Hours: Polls are open from 7:00 AM until 8:00 PM. If you are in line to vote by 8:00 PM, you will be permitted to vote.
ID: You do not need an ID to vote unless you are a first-time voter or it is the first time voting at this polling location.

The Voter applied for and Received his Mail-In Ballot (MIB) but:

  1. The Voter decides instead to Vote in person at the Polls on November 3rd
    • The voter must have the ballot with the outer mailing envelope in order to vote normally.
      • The Judge of Elections will spoil the Mailed ballot and the voter will vote normally.
    • If the voter does not have the ballot plus outer envelope, or has lost the ballot:
      • Go into the polls, inform the Judge of Elections (JOE) and vote with a provisional ballot.
  2. The Voter arrives at the polls with the mail-in ballot completed and wants to drop the MIB at the polls.
    • Mail In Ballots cannot be dropped at the polls. The voter has two options.
      • Go to one of the drop box locations in the county (see below).
      • Go into the polling place, have the JOE spoil the ballot and vote at the polls.
  3. The Voter applied for a Mail-In -Ballot but did not receive the ballot.
    • The voter should go into the poll and inform the poll workers. The voter will receive a provisional ballot to vote.

BOTTOM LINE: IF YOU ARE CONCERNED THERE HAS BEEN A PROBLEM WITH YOUR MAIL-IN BALLOT, COME TO THE POLLS. AT THE VERY LEAST YOU WILL BE ABLE TO VOTE A PROVISIONAL BALLOT, THAT WILL BE COUNTED IF YOU HAVE NOT VOTED SUCCESSFULLY BY MAIL.
