Franklin County Elections board: Take advantage of drive-through ballot drop
Some Franklin County residents can take advantage of a rare opportunity to vote without leaving their car on Saturday. But only if they elected to vote by mail and they haven’t returned their mail-in ballots yet.
The Board of Elections is hosting a drive-thru event from 9 a.m.–3 pm at the rear of the Historic Courthouse under the catwalk connecting it to the Courthouse Annex. This alleyway between the old courthouse and its newer annex is also known as Central Avenue.
Voters will be able to pull into the alley, present their voted ballot to election staff to confirm everything is in order; and then have the ballot deposited into a secured ballot box. Voters will also receive an “I VOTED” sticker, just like they get when they vote in person at the polls.
Voters have until 8 p.m. Tuesday to return their voted ballot to the Voter Registration Office or the County Commissioners’ Office/County Board of Elections. The Voter Registration Office is located in the Historic Courthouse, 2 North Main Street, Chambersburg. The Board of Elections is county’s administration office at 340 North Second Street, Chambersburg.
Ballots will also be counted if they are postmarked by Nov. 3 and received by the County no later than Friday, November 6.
