NorCo Drop Boxes Available for MIBs

If you've requested a no-excuse mail-in ballot in Northampton County, most of them are on the way. You can return your ballot via the USPS or drop it off at one of four drop-boxes located in each of the county's four districts until May 18. These drop boxes are at the same locations used in November's Presidential.

Rotunda of the Government Center – 669 Washington Street, Easton, PA 18042
o  Monday – Friday from 8:30AM – 8:00PM  (When dropping off a ballot, voters can park for free in the loading-and-unloading zone on Washington Street in front of the courthouse or use the new parking lot at the intersection of Wolf Avenue and Washington Street. )

Human Services Building – 2801 Emrick Blvd. Bethlehem, PA 18020
o  Monday – Friday from 8:30AM – 7:00PM

 Northampton County 911 Center – 100 Gracedale Ave. Nazareth, PA 18064
o  Monday – Friday from 8:30AM – 4:30PM

 Bethlehem City Hall – 10 E. Church Street, Bethlehem, PA 18018
o  Monday – Friday from 8:00AM – 4:00PM

There is free parking at all four locations. 

Your mail-in ballot must be returned to the Election’s Office by 8:00PM on Election Day. It must be sealed inside of a privacy envelope and the outer return envelope properly signed and dated.

Also, to prevent ballot harvesting, voters may only drop off their own ballots. Third party return of ballots, even if it is a husband dropping off his wife's ballot is prohibited. The only exceptions are when that third party is rendering assistance to a disabled voter or emergency absentee voter and has a signed “Certification of Designated Agent” or “Declaration of Need of Assistance” form. A copy of these forms can be downloaded at VotesPA.com

Counterfeiting, forging, tampering with or destroying ballots is a second-degree misdemeanor pursuant to sections 1816 and 1817 of the PA Election Code. (25 P.S. §§ 3516 and 3517)

Voters can track the status of their mail-in or absentee ballots at VotesPA.com

There's really no protection against ballot dumping here. Lot's of toothless laws exist. The party in charge makes and interprets the rules. Elections have consequences. NorCo will be blue for the rest of time, leaving northern townships more at odds with southern cities than ever. It's time for a civil, civil war. The northern flank should secede and retain Northampton as its name. Chapman should be the county seat. The southern portion can be renamed Shithole County and bask in the warmth of its plastic straw bans, ever increasing taxes and fees, and incessant gunfire.

Yeah. I'll travel to one of these locations and walk to the drop off box with just one ballot. Pa-lease.

Stupidity.I can put 100 in the post office mailbox. Just as stupid as needing more than my passport to get real ID.

There is a drop box in each of the county's four districts. The drop box at the 911 center serves the slate belt on northern tier. The drop box in Bethlehem Tp serves Northampton.
