CRANFORD - The six polling locations that will be open for in-person voting in Cranford for the July 7 primary election has been released.
The Primary Election will be conducted primarily by Vote-by-Mail, by order of New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. In accordance with the governor’s order, voters who choose to cast their ballot in person on election day will not use voting machines. They will be provided with provisional paper ballots at their polling place. Voting machines will be available only to voters with disabilities.
“The COVID-19 precautions are still in force, and we strongly urge voters to use a Vote-by-Mail ballot for the July 7 Primary Election,” said Ms. DiRado. “However, polling locations will be available on July 7 for those who need them.”
Ms. DiRado also emphasized that Vote-by-Mail ballots will not be accepted at the polling places, in accordance with the Governor's order. Voters who choose to vote in person will be provided with a provisional ballot when they arrive at their polling place.
In-person voters must wear masks and observe social distance precautions to avoid contracting or spreading COVID-19 when visiting a polling place.
As a reminder, Vote by Mail ballots will automatically be mailed to all active, registered Democrat and Republican voters. All unaffiliated and inactive Democrat and Republican voters will automatically receive a Vote by Mail Ballot Application. Returned postage on both is prepaid.
Voters are encouraged to vote and return their ballots as soon as possible. All ballots postmarked on or before election day and received by 8pm on July 14 will be canvassed and counted.
