The two ballot drop boxes available in Berks County opened Monday for voters to drop off their completed mail-in and absentee ballots.
The County of Berks coordinated with local developer Alan Shuman to open additional parking spaces outside of the Berks County Services Center for voters stopping by to utilize the drop boxes and visit the Office of Election Services.
A total of 10 parking spaces are available for voters. Three spaces are in the cutout space directly outside of the Services Center’s Reed Street entrance, while the other seven spaces are located in the parking lot directly across Reed Street.
The additional spaces are marked with signs and include two designated handicap spaces. The County thanks Mr. Shuman for his willingness to allow the County to use these spaces to better accommodate voters.
The second ballot drop box is located at the Berks County Agricultural Center, 1238 County Welfare Road, Leesport.
The drop boxes will be open throughout the week during normal business hours, with extended hours on weekends, the Monday before Election Day and Election Day, November 8.
A full list of hours is available on the Office of Election Services website at www.countyofberks.com/elections.
