Voting During a Pandemic

Voting During a Pandemic

The Coronavirus is having a major impact on how Americans are voting in 2020.  In New Jersey and several other states, registered voters have been sent mail-in ballots.  An estimated 40 to 60 percent of voters nationwide are expected to vote by mail.

Most New Jerseyans will not be voting in person at polling places this year. However, you may return your vote-by-mail ballot at a special polling place on Election Day.  If you report to a polling place and do not have a ballot with you, you will be provided with a provisional paper ballot.  Accommodations will be made for certain disabled people to use an accessible voting device.  No voting machines will be available for non-disabled voters.

The Hudson County Clerk has announced special in-person polling locations in Bayonne for Election Day.

 

The locations are shown by ward.

First-time voters and all voters should read the voting instructions carefully and completely before doing anything.  Do not detach the certificate that is attached to the ballot envelope.  Please be sure to sign that certificate.  Call the Hudson County Clerk at 201-369-3470 (Option 6) about any problems that develop with your mail-in ballot.
