Delaware County and the Philadelphia Union have partnered to host a three-day ‘pop-up’ Voter Service Center at Subaru Park in Chester on Friday, October 16 and Saturday, October 17 between 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Sunday, October 18, from noon – 6 p.m.
The Pop-Up Voter Service Center will be managed by the Delaware County Bureau of Elections and staffed by employees of the County.
Delaware County residents are invited to stop by for a variety of election services, including:
• Voter Registration
• Registration Status Confirmation
• Mail-in and Absentee Ballot Requests
• Mail-in and Absentee Ballot Drop Offs*
• Status of your Mail-in and Absentee Ballot Request
• Polling Place Location Confirmation
• Pick up of Paper Forms and Applications (Spanish and English)
• Answers to election questions regarding paper ballots, disabled voter services, provisional ballots, vote-by-mail options, etc.
The pop up center will have twelve stations and is ideal for groups who want to bring people in who are concerned about voting by mail for the first time. The staff will be practicing social distancing and there will be ample room for people to spread out. There is plenty of parking at the stadium.
The Pop-Up Voter Service Center will allow Delaware County registered voters to request a mail-in ballot at the stadium, complete the ballot, and officially submit it on-site, that day. Residents of Delaware County who are not yet registered can complete the registration process on-site and request a mail-in ballot to be sent to them by mail. Once received, voters can return their mail-in ballot by mail, to any Voter Service Center, or any Ballot Drop Box located throughout the County (locations and times of operation to be published later this week).*
Voters should be aware that, per Pennsylvania state law, the third-party return of ballots is prohibited unless the person returning the ballot is rendering assistance to a disabled voter or an emergency absentee voter. Such assistance requires a declaration signed by the voter and the person rendering assistance.
