If you voted by mail in the 2016 presidential election, you won’t be able cast your ballot in the voting booth/machine this year, unless you write your County Clerk to opt out of receiving a vote by mail ballot. Pay attention to your mail. If you voted by mail in 2016, you will receive a Mail-In-Ballot this year too, due to a new law signed by Governor Murphy this month.
Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon announced changes to the vote by mail procedures in a press release on Friday afternoon.
“A new law signed by Governor Phil Murphy in August dramatically changed the Vote by Mail rules in New Jersey. These changes are effective immediately and will impact the November General Election,” Hanlon said.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Christine Hanlon, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News | Tags: Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, Vote by mail, Voting | 3 Comments »
Hurricane Sandy alters election locations
FREEHOLD, NJ – The Monmouth County Clerk’s Office and the Monmouth County Board of Elections continue to strive to provide a normal as possible Election Day for residents of Monmouth County in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
In 51 of the 53 Monmouth County municipalities, residents will be voting in their communities. For a complete list of locations, click here.
Provisions have been made for residents in two of the most severely storm-ravaged boroughs to vote in neighboring communities. Sea Bright residents will vote at the Fair Haven Fire House on 645 River Road in Fair Haven. Loch Arbour residents will be voting at the Allenhurst Fire House on 311 Hume Street in Allenhurst. All other residents will vote in their own community.
In 23 of the 53 municipalities of Monmouth County, there will be no changes in polling districts.
However, storm damage has required polling sites to be moved or consolidated in the remaining municipalities. These changes were coordinated with the municipal clerks in each municipality.
For questions about Election Day polling places, please call your municipal clerk.Posted: November 5th, 2012 | Author: admin | Filed under: Elections, Hurricane Sandy, Monmouth County, Press Release | Tags: Monmouth County, Polling Places, Voting | Comments Off on Monmouth County Polling Location Updates
