9/30/21: The Lehigh County Office of Voter Registration is alerting residents that all mailings from the Voter Participation Center (VPC) hold no connection with the official Lehigh County Office of Voter Registration and are not affiliated with the County of Lehigh. The Voter Participation Center’s efforts to increase voter enrollment have caused confusion or concerns with those already registered to vote. The Lehigh County Office of Voter Registration has no part in the development or distribution of the VPC’s mailings. No voter information has ever been shared. Residents should be advised that anyone who receives a VPC mailing can unsubscribe from future mailings by following the instructions found in the letter.
The Lehigh County Office of Voter Registration is the best agency equipped to offer accurate voter registration information, and any Lehigh County resident with voting questions or concerns should contact the office directly at 610-782-3194.

Drop boxes for mail ballots will be available for residents at five select municipal buildings in Lehigh County beginning October 18, 2021. On September 17th, 2020, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania ruled that drop boxes will be allowed for the upcoming Elections. As a result, the Lehigh County Election Board finalized that five boxes will be available at the following locations:
North Whitehall Township Building
Lehigh County Authority (LCA) Lobby
Fountain Hill Borough Building
Lehigh County Government Center
Emmaus Borough Office
All locations will have drop boxes inside the building and will be available for use during normal municipal business hours. Ballots can be dropped off at these locations instead of by mail or by handing them to a Voter Registration Office employee. You may only drop off your ballot. Certificate of Designated Agent forms can be found at www.vote.pa.gov This will allow you to drop off someone else’s ballot if they are physically unable to do so. Each drop box location will be monitored via electronic surveillance.
All ballots must be enclosed in the Secrecy mailing envelope before being sealed in the mailing envelope. Secrecy envelopes cannot have any identifying marks. Mailing envelope must be signed & dated. Any ballots that fail to do this will not be counted. Full Press Release
