Who Prints Out an Election Ballot?

Since 2003, that task has been performed in Northampton County by Reliance Graphics, a West Chester based firm. If Council approves the latest five-year contract proposal, it will continue for at least the next five years. Reliance is the only company that actually bid on printing ballots, although 14 different companies were interested.

If a five-year contract is approved, Reliance will print ballots each election for $26,000. The contract also includes two one-year extensions.

Reliance also provides ballot printing services to Berks, Bucks, Carbon, Delaware and Lehigh Counties.
