Mail-in ballots can be mailed or dropped off in the elections office on the first floor of the county courthouse at the corner of Baltimore and Middle Streets in Gettysburg. The office said the drop off box in the courthouse lobby would be available but no date was given for its availability.

A guide to the candidates will be posted before the elections.

Mail-in ballot tips

Mail-in ballots may be returned using the drop box at the county courthouse between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The dropoff box at the courthouse is on the first floor just inside the door.

The courthouse is open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.  The courthouse will remain open until 8:00 p.m. on election day.

If you need any help completing your mail-in ballot, call the elections office at 717.337.9832 and they will help.

If you cannot get to the drop box, call the elections office. They will come out to pick up your ballot if you pull over in front of the courthouse.
