BRIDGEWATER, NJ - The primary elections are scheduled for July 7, having been rescheduled from June due to coronavirus, and there are a number of changes in procedure and polling locations this year.
Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Residents should have already received mail-in ballots if they prefer not to go to polling locations. Those must be postmarked no later than Election Day, and must be received by the Somerset County Board of Elections no later than 48 hours after polls close.
In Bridgewater, there will only be five locations open for in person voting. All in-person voting will be done by provisional ballot only, unless the voter is visually impaired or has a disability.
The first will be the Bradley Gardens Firehouse, on Old York Road. Districts voting there will be 1, 2, 3, 14, 16, 27 and 31.
The second is the Bridgewater Municipal Court, meeting room 102, on Commons Way, for districts 4, 11, 13, 22, 25, 26, 28 and 29.
Next is the Bridgewater Senior Center, on Somerville Road, for districts 7, 8, 9, 15, 18, 21 and 32.
The fourth district is Blessed Sacrament Parish Center, on Washington Valley Road, at the lower level in the back, for districts 6, 10, 12, 17, 20, 23 and 24.
The final polling location is the Somerset County Park Commission, on Milltown Road, for districts 5, 19, 30, 33, 34, 35 and 36.
In addition, Bridgewater Township will also have a county drop box for ballots at the municipal building in the parking lot nearest Commons Way outside the police station.
In Raritan, the only polling location open will be the municipal building, on First Street.
Bridgewater does not have any local elections this year, and Raritan’s elections for the Republican and Democratic nominations are unopposed.
