Gov. Phil Murphy has said the Nov. 3 general election will be conducted primarily by mail. All registered voters in New Jersey will receive a ballot by Oct. 5.
The ballot, which is topped by the race for president between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden, may be returned in one of several ways, including by mail.
According to the governor, an individual who has a disability will be permitted to vote on a machine at a polling location in their municipality on Nov. 3.
Any other individual who goes to a polling location in their municipality to vote on Nov. 3 will only be able to fill out a provisional paper ballot that will be collected by a poll worker.
Republicans on the national level have said they will challenge New Jersey’s voting plan.
