Voting By Mail
In light of the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Governor Murphy signed Executive Order No. 144 on May 15, 2020 which requires the County Clerk to send all Unaffiliated and Inactive Democratic and Republican registered voters a Vote-by-Mail Ballot application for the upcoming July 7, 2020 Primary Election. You will receive an application because you are a registered Unaffiliated voter or a voter with an Inactive status that is entitled to vote in the July 7, 2020 Primary Election.
Because New Jersey is a closed Primary Election state, in order to receive a ballot, an Unaffiliated voter must choose to be affiliated with the Democratic or Republican party to receive that Party’s Vote by Mail Ballot. You may return to an Unaffiliated status following the Primary Election by completing and returning a Party Declaration Form to your County Commissioner of Registration.
Requesting an Absentee Ballot
A voter may apply for a Mail-In Ballot by mail up to 7 days prior to the election. He or she may also apply in person to the County Clerk prior to 8 P.M. the day of the election. Applications may also be found on the NJ Division of Elections website.
Voting In Person
Polling places will be open on July 7th. If you choose to vote in person, please use proper social distancing practices. If you are unsure of your polling location, you can find it here.
