BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The Berkeley Heights Township Clerk Ana Minkoff has been made aware of a glitch in the printing of the Republican "Official Mail-in Ballot" sent by the County.
At this time, TAPinto Berkeley Heights can only confirm an error with the Republican Primary "Official Mail-in Ballot." It is important to check the Certificate of Mail-in Voter form that is to be mailed back to the Union County Board of Elections. If the name and address on the CERTIFICATE OF MAIL-IN VOTER does not match the name and address on the envelope your ballot was mailed in TAKE A PICTURE of both envelopes and send to the Berkeley Heights Township Clerk at email@example.com.
"I don't know how widespread the issue is and whether they should do another mailing," said Minkoff. "I'm waiting for a call from the County Clerk about a corrective ballot." Minkoff could only verify the issue in Berkeley Heights with the Republican Primary Ballots. Upon verification from the County on how widespread the issue is, TAPinto will provide an update.
From Minkoff's discussion with the County Clerk's office, she believes the printing glitch could have been with only the people that never voted by mail, but she is awaiting clarification.
With COVID-19, the Primary Election will rely on Mail-In Ballot voting.
