EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - The New Jersey Primary Election will take place this Tuesday. In East Brunswick, residents can vote by mail using a postage-paid ballot which was sent a few weeks ago; or take that ballot that arrived in the mail and drop it off at the Ballot Box at the EB Municipal building; or vote in-person at Churchill or Hammarskjold School before 8:00 pm on Tuesday night.
If you are not a registered voter in the Democratic or Republican Party, you may register at the poll when you vote there today. Only registered party members received the mail-in ballot.
