The Monmouth County Clerk’s Election Office and the Board of Elections Office, both located at 300 Halls Mills Road in Freehold Township, have extended their hours to accommodate voters who are not able to make it to the polls on Tuesday.
These offices are open Friday November 2 from 8:30 a.m.till 8 p.m. and on Saturday November 3 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Registered voters can apply for a Vote by Mail ballot at the Clerk’s Office and then go down the hall to the Board of Elections office to cast their ballot during these hours and on Monday, November 5 from 8:30 a.m. until 3 p.m.
By NJ law, the deadline to apply for a Vote by Mail ballot is 3 .pm. on Monday.
Voters who have already received a mail-in ballot, either because they requested one or because the new Vote by Mail law required that they be sent one (voters who received a Vote by Mail ballot in 2016), must remember that they will not be able to vote on the voting machines on Election Day. These voters must either vote the mail-in ballot and send it back to the Board of Elections for counting, or they can vote on a paper provisional ballot at their polling locations on Election Day.
If any voter has lost or misplaced his or her mail-in ballot, please contact the County Clerk’s Elections Office immediately by calling 732-431-7790 or emailing [email protected].
Vote by Mail ballots must be post marked on or before November 6 in order to be counted. Under a new law signed by Governor Murphy in August, ballots received by the Board of Elections up to 48 hours after the polls close (8 p.m., Tuesday, November 6) and post marked on or before November 6, will be counted.
