The Monmouth County Board of Freeholders has announced mail-in ballot drop box locations for the Nov. 3 general election.
The election is topped by the race for president between Republican Donald J. Trump and Democrat Joseph Biden. There are also races for federal offices, county offices, municipal offices and school boards, and public questions.
Gov. Phil Murphy has directed that with the 2020 coronavirus pandemic still an issue in New Jersey, the Nov. 3 general election will primarily be conducted by mail-in ballot. The July 7 primary election was conducted in the same manner.
“Regardless of the state mandated changes, it is essential to have your vote counted for the general election,” said Freeholder Lillian G. Burry, liaison to the Board of Elections. “On Nov. 3, there will be limited in-person polling locations with only paper (provisional) ballots available.”
Voting machines will be unavailable, except for Americans with Disabilities Act-accessible ballot marking devices, according to a press release from the county.
All registered voters will receive a mail-in ballot for the Nov. 3 election. A sample ballot will be available online at monmouthcountyvotes.com, according to the press release.
A mail-in ballot may be returned through the United States Postal Service or voters may place their completed mail-in ballot in a drop box by 8 p.m. Nov. 3 at one of the following locations:
