Clerk Hanlon is advising voters that they will have more ways and more days to vote in person with the implementation of a new voting option beginning this upcoming Nov. 2 General Election. Earlier this year, a new State law was passed mandating the option of in-person early voting in New Jersey. This new option allows registered voters to cast their ballots in person, using a voting machine, during a nine day period prior to Election Day at designated early voting polling locations.
New Jersey voters will now have three options for voting: These options are voting by mail, voting in person on Election Day at assigned polling locations, or the new early in-person voting option at designated polling locations.
Clerk Hanlon has also launched a video series advising voters of these major changes to the election process. The first installment, an overview of the process, can be shared and embedded at the following:
VOTING BY MAIL:
Clerk Hanlon is also reminding residents that voting by mail is an available option for all registered voters in Monmouth County and that the mail-in ballots for the Nov. 2 General Election are now available. The Clerk of Elections commenced the mailing of Vote by Mail Ballots for the General Election to voters on Sept. 18, pursuant to New Jersey law.
Voting by mail is one of three available options for voting in the 2021 General Election. The other two options are in person early voting at one of the County’s 10 designated polling locations from Oct. 23 to 31, which is a new State-mandated voting option this year, and the tradition option of voting in person on Nov. 2 Election Day at your assigned polling location.
