CLARK, NJ – Mail-in ballots for the November election are on their way to Clark voters according to Union County Clerk Joanne Rajobbi Ballots went in the mail on Tuesday, September 15.
Clark Township Clerk, Edie Merkel said residents should be on the lookout for ballots in the next few days. Voters will not receive a sample ballot this election cycle. The one arriving in the next few days will be the official mail-in ballot.
Rajoppi said voters can complete their mail-in ballots immediately upon receipt. In this video Rajoppi explains how to cast and seal a ballot and more.
Limited polling locations will be open this year and voting machines can only be used by the handicapped according to her video. Other voters arriving at the polls can give their mail-in ballots to a poll worker or use a provisional paper ballot to cast their vote. Merkel added that those arriving at polls to submit their mail-in ballot will have to wait in line at the polls and sign voter registrations books before they can leave the ballot.
Finally, Merkel said there will be a postcard delivered from the United States Postal Service at some point suggesting voters need to request an absentee ballot which does not apply in New Jersey. Voters should use the mail-in ballot being sent to every registered voter. Here is the postcard from the USPS:
