Proceed to vote and exit through the side door. The sidewalks will be well lit and will lead you back to the parking lot.

I requested a mail-in ballot and
changed my mind?
Bring both your envelopes and your ballot to the polling place to be surrendered.
Check-in. Tell the inspector you have a mail-in ballot, but want to vote in person.
The inspector or judge of elections will spoil your ballot.
Sign an Elector’s Declaration to Surrender your Mail Ballot and receive a new ballot.

I requested a mail-in ballot and it never came or I forgot my ballot at home?
You can cast a provisional ballot. These ballots will be the last ones to be counted once the election bureau has verified that your mail-in ballot has not been cast.
WHEN WILL WE KNOW?
The election results will not be known on election night.
But you already knew that.
Because over 152,000 votes have been cast by mail in Delaware County alone. PA law does not allow the bureau to open the ballots until 7 am on Election Day to begin the count. To give a result on election night would mean all those envelopes would have to have been opened, verified, and scanned within the 13-hour window when people are voting. In the past, Chester Heights had 5-20 absentee ballots. This year we have 1,003.
