VOTE BY MAIL

New Jersey law states that any registered voter is eligible to apply for the Vote By Mail program, for any reason and for any election. In order to vote in this year’s primary election on July 7th from the comfort of your home, simply complete the application and return it to the County Clerk’s office no later than seven days prior to an election date. In order to receive your ballot for this July’s Primary Election, the application must be received by June 30, 2020. No postage is required, since this application and the ballot envelope that voters receive are both prepaid. Once the Clerk’s Office receives the application, a ballot is sent to you in time for the election. Once you complete and submit a Vote By Mail ballot, your vote is counted and you will not have to vote at the polls. Your vote is your voice and is one that can be exercised regardless of the current crisis.

As per Governor Murphy’s Executive Order 144, the upcoming Primary Election will be mainly conducted by Vote By Mail and all active, registered Democrats and Republicans will automatically receive a ballot.

ACTIVE REGISTERED DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS, ACTIVE UNAFFILIATED, INACTIVE UNAFFILIATED, AND INACTIVE DEMOCRATS & REPUBLICANS You will automatically receive your Vote By Mail ballot in the mail. You should have recently received a Vote By Mail application from the County Clerk. Please fill it out and mail it back (postage paid) by June 30th in order to receive a Vote By Mail ballot for the July 7th Primary election.

After filling out your Vote By Mail ballot, you can choose to:

1.  Mail it in from the comfort of your home; or
