All other Vote-By-Mail ballots must be dropped off to the Middlesex County Board of Elections by the close of polls on Election Day, Nov. 6. The Board of Elections is located at 11 Kennedy Blvd., East Brunswick, NJ.
Voters who wish to send their Vote-By-Mail ballots through the mail must ensure they are postmarked no later than Nov. 6. These mailed ballots must be received at the Board of Elections within 48 hours after polls close.
“These extended office hours will help our residents, especially those who work during our regular hours, to exercise their right to vote,” said County Clerk Elaine M. Flynn.
“One of the most important rights we have is the right to vote. That is why Middlesex County has embraced a Vote-By-Mail initiative to help those who cannot make it to the polls on Nov. 6,” said Freeholder Blanquita B. Valenti, Chair of the Community Services Committee. “The extended office hours ease the process of voting even more.”
Voters may visit the Clerk’s Office during normal business hours, 8:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Mondays through Fridays to apply for a Vote-by-Mail Ballot. The deadline to apply for a Vote-By-Mail ballot in person is 3 p.m. Monday, Nov. 5. Voters must then mail or drop off the voted ballot to the Board of Elections before the deadlines state above.
