Innamorato Announces Return of Ballot Drop Off Locations for 2024 Elections

Ballot Drop Box

Allegheny County Executive Sara Innamorato today announced expanded services for Allegheny County voters for the 2024 elections. In addition to ballot drop off and “over the counter” voting services at the downtown County Office Building (542 Forbes Avenue), the County Elections Division will also operate five staffed absentee/mail-in ballot drop off locations around the county.

“Expanding access to voting, while maintaining the safety and security of our elections, is critically important to my administration and for protecting our democracy,” said Innamorato. “I’m proud to announce that the Elections Division will be staffing five additional ballot drop off locations so voters across Allegheny County have expanded, secure options for voting in the lead up to the April 23rd primary Election Day.”

The additional five drop off locations will be open the two weekends before Election Day: Saturday, April 13 and April 20, 9 am – 5 pm; and Sunday, April 14 and April 21, 11 am – 7 pm. The five locations are distributed geographically across the county to give all voters easier access to a secure ballot drop off location.

Sam DeMarco, Chairman of the Republican Committee of Allegheny County, was not pleased.

“County Executive Innamorato’s expansion of “Drop boxes” in Allegheny County without consultation of her fellow Board of Elections Members or input from the public only further validates voters’ concerns about her inexperience and judgment which led to the narrowest County Executive election in 24 years. To do this in this manner while so many still question the integrity of our elections will only serve to further divide us instead of bringing us together. So much for an “Allegheny County for All”.”

Voters may drop off mail-in or absentee ballots at these five locations:

East End: Carnegie Public Library of Squirrel Hill
5801 Forbes Avenue
Pittsburgh, PA 15217

South: South Park Ice Rink
30 Corrigan Drive
Bethel Park, PA 15102

North: North Park Ice Rink

East: Boyce Park Four Seasons Lodge
901 Centerview Drive
Plum, PA 15239

West: 911 Call Center
150 Hookstown Grade Road
Moon, PA 15108

As in recent past elections, the County Office Building will be open for voters to apply for mail-in or absentee ballots and vote in person (“over the counter voting”), as well as drop off completed mail-in ballots. Over the counter voting is available on the first floor of the County Office Building at the corner of Forbes Avenue and Ross Street as soon as ballots are ready, approximately 30 days prior Election Day. Further announcements will be made when they are available.

Additionally, completed mail-in and absentee ballots may be dropped off at the Ross Street entrance of the County Office Building Monday, April 15 – Thursday, April 18 from 8:30 am-4:30 pm; Friday, April 19 from 8:30 am – 8 pm; Saturday, April 20 from 9 am – 5 pm; Sunday, April 21 from 11 am – 7 pm; the day before Election Day, Monday, April 22 from 8:30 am-8 pm; and Election Day drop off hours are the same as the polling hours, 7 am-8 pm. Voters using the Ross Street drop off may park briefly using the lane closest to the County Office Building while returning their ballot.

Additional important dates for the Primary 2024 Election include the April 8 deadline to register to vote, and the April 16 deadline for applying for an absentee or mail-in ballot. All ballots must be received by 8 pm on Election Day, April 23.

  1. I don’t think the new ballot drop off boxes should be available. Especially a skating rink!
    These could cause tampering
