MonmouthCounty.BallotTrax.net is simple and easy to use. It took me less than a minute to confirm that my ballot has been received.
Voters who register with their name, address and date of birth will receive a text or an email when their ballot is received.
The system is a separate service than the State ballot tracking system which some voters have expressed difficulty signing up for, Hanlon said.
MonmouthCountyBallotTrax is another example of Hanlon’s ongoing efforts to bring voter confidence and certainty to an election fraught with confusion and chaos due to Governor Murphy’s Executive Order mandating that every active voter receive a paper ballot to be returned by mail or secure drop box. Murphy’s EO mandates that only the disabled can vote via machine on Election Day and that voters who show up at the polls on November 3 can drop off the ballot they received in the mail or complete a paper provisional ballot which will be counted, if valid, after all the ballots that were mailed to voters are counted.
Hanlon is urging voters who have not yet received a ballot to either email
[email protected] with your name, address and date of birth to receive new one or to visit the Board of Elections at 300 Halls Mill Road in Freehold for a replacement, and M-F 8:30am-4:30pm.
Emailing [email protected] , is the most efficient method of ensuring that you will receive a replacement ballot, as there are long lines at the Board of Elections and the staff is being inundated with phone calls which are more time consuming to process.
