Mail-in Ballots on Their Way to Voters in Bucks County

Mail-in ballot being held up by Board of Elections employee

Mail-in and absentee ballots for November’s General Election began arriving this week in mailboxes across Bucks County. As of Thursday, more than 69,000 ballots already had been mailed to voters out of about 74,000 approved ballot applications.  

Voters have until Nov. 1 to request a mail-in ballot. Requests can be made online, through the mail using an official ballot application, or in person at a county Board of Elections Office. You may check the status of your application here. If you have already applied for a mail-in or absentee ballot, please do not submit another application. 

Completed ballots can be mailed back to the Board of Elections Office at any time after receipt and prior to Election Day, Nov. 8.  

All ballots must be received by the Bucks County Board of Elections Office by 8 p.m. on Election Day, so voters are encouraged to either mail their ballot back as early as possible, or to consider using one of the county’s official ballot drop boxes in the days closer to the election. Ballots also may be dropped off with a county Board of Elections employee at a Board of Elections Office. 

Ballots received after 8 p.m. Nov. 8 will not be counted. 

Ballot drop boxes will open in the coming weeks at 11 locations throughout the county, including three boxes at county government buildings opening Oct. 17. Drop boxes will open the week of Oct. 24 at eight libraries located throughout the county.  

All drop boxes are supervised by a Board of Elections employee while the boxes are in operation. Ballots are collected from the boxes at least once per day, and returned to the main Board of Elections Office in Doylestown where they remain secured and unopened until 7 a.m. Election Day. 

Click here for a complete listing of ballot drop box locations and operating hours.  

Voters may only return their own ballot unless they have been authorized as a designated agent for another voter. To learn more about authorizing a designated agent, visit the Bucks County Board of Elections Vote-by-Mail information page
