Due to COVID-19, New Jersey Elections are pushed to July 7th, and now will be Primarily A Vote-By-Mail Election.
On May 15, 2020, Governor Murphy signed Executive Order #144 stating that the July 7th Primary Election will be conducted primarily by Vote by Mail Ballot Election. It is important for voters to understand how the new process will work so we can be sure that votes are valid under the new rules. Make sure your vote counts.
The 3 p.m. July 6th deadline to submit a VBM Application in-person has been suspended. In-person VBM Applications will be accepted by the County Clerk’s Election Office until 8:00 pm on July 7, 2020.
If you are using the US Postal Service to mail your ballot, the ballot must be postmarked on or before July 7, 2020 and received by the Board of Elections by 8 pm on July 14, 2020 to be considered valid and to be counted.
