The General Election is Tuesday, November 3!
New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed Executive Orders No. 177 (PDF) and No. 179 (PDF) to create a modified vote-by-mail election for the November election due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The order suspends the sending of sample ballots, and requires that each county’s elections officials send vote-by-mail ballots with pre-paid postage to all active registered voters for the General Election.
The last day to register to vote is October 13, 2020. Please click HERE for election forms, updates and information as it becomes available from Essex County. You may now also register to vote online! Please click HERE to visit the New Jersey Online Voter Registration website.
