  • Polling Place locations
  • Voter Service Centers (locations, hours, services)
  • Ballot Drop Boxes
  • Naked Ballots (what are they?)
  • Deadlines

  • Rules regarding 3rd party ballot drop offs
  • And more!

The hotline is available Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 8 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m. – noon.

Voters calling to check on the status of their vote-by-mail ballot can also check the status directly through the Pennsylvania Department of State’s “Election Ballot Status” lookup tool: www.pavoterservices.pa.gov/Pages/BallotTracking.aspx

Voters who wish to speak to someone in-person are welcome to walk-in to any Delaware County Voter Service Center, located in Media, Upper Darby, and Chester. More information, including location and hours of operation can be found here: delcopa.gov/vsc

Voters are also reminded that many of the answers to their questions can be easily found on the updated elections website: Delco Votes!
