Traffic delays for ballot collection

York City residents should expect congestion on several streets due to drive-up ballot collections at the York County Administrative Center.

Motorists should be aware of delays on East Market, George and North Beaver streets, according to a news release.

Individuals should avoid East Market Street eastbound to George Street to provide "easier access" to residents dropping off ballots, the release states.

Drive-up access in front of the York County Administrative Center, located at 28 E. Market St., will be available from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day, which is Tuesday
