Election officials in Bucks County are preparing for the Nov. 2 election, the first with additional drop boxes.
There are several ways voters can cast their ballots and several additional locations where they can do that this year.
After strong lobbying by Bucks Voice, a nonpartisan voter engagement group, the county’s Board of Elections agreed earlier this year to add eight drop boxes across Bucks to offer access to more voters. Three ballot drop boxes at the county’s administrative buildings remain available. On demand mail-in and absentee ballots are available at those government drop box sites.

The drop boxes will be monitored by Board of Elections employees and all have 24/7 video surveillance, said county officials.
Voters can only return their own ballot in a drop box unless they have been authorized as a “designated agent” for another voter, according to state law. A form for such designation is available on the county’s board of elections website.
