In the May primary, fully 24% of Bucks County’s votes were received via ballot boxes across just four boxes around the county. That’s enough to indicate what many of us already know — that the nature of voting continues to evolve, much to the chagrin of a whole party of people who don’t want you to vote at all, unless you’re on their side. 

Nevertheless, as detailed in this more-candor-than-you’d-expect County press release, the Bucks County Board of Elections has approved a significant upgrade to 11 boxes for this November’s election. In addition to the four boxes at County offices in Quakertown, Doylestown and Levittown and the Yardley-Makefield Free Library in Lower Makefield, the seven new locations would be:

  • Bensalem Library: 3700 Hulmeville Road, Bensalem
  • Grundy Library: 680 Radcliffe St., Bristol
  • New Hope Library: 93 W. Ferry St., New Hope
  • Northampton Library: 25 Upper Holland Road, Richboro
  • Perkasie Library: 491 Arthur Ave., Perkasie
  • Riegelsville Library: 615 Easton Road, Riegelsville
  • Warminster Library: 1076 Emma Lane, Warminster

We like the library strategy, at it’s both practical — libraries are already staffed, and they’re community hubs — and creative: It’s also a way to get more people into libraries, which is never a bad thing. Other details are still being worked out — no word yet on what date the boxes will  appear on sites, the board also voted to provide in-person security for each drop box, and some locations are still being evaluated — but all in all, great news for people who like to vote!

We’ll keep this post updated as more information becomes available.
