PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Monday is the last day to register to vote in the May 18 primary. Here is a look at election plans in the Philadelphia suburbs.

Mail-in ballots can be requested until May 11, but all ballots must be received by 8 p.m. on May 18. The four suburban counties each say they have begun mailing them out.

Montgomery County will place 11 ballot drop boxes around the county, and will staff four satellite offices with limited hours in Lansdale, Lower Merion, Pottstown and Willow Grove. The drop boxes will be available 24 hours a day, and will be monitored by video.

Delaware County will use the same 41 drop boxes installed last year.

Chester County will have all 191 polling locations open, along with 13 ballot drop boxes: 12 at libraries across the county and one at the county government building in West Chester. Ten of them will be staffed with limited hours, and three will have 24-hour video surveillance.

Bucks County has authorized four ballot drop boxes with limited hours.
