Due to COVID-19 (coronavirus), the June 2 Primary has been postponed to July 7, per Gov. Phil Murphy's executive order. All active registered Republican and Democratic voters will automatically receive a vote-by-mail ballot, according to the League of Women Voters.

A pre-paid postage return envelope will be included.

All unaffiliated voters and inactive Republican and Democratic voters will receive a postage-paid vote-by-mail application. To the extent possible, there will be at least 5 readily accessible secure ballot drop box locations per county for voters to return their vote-by-mail ballots, the League said. 

Vote-by-mail ballots returned by mail must be postmarked by July 7 (Election Day) and must be received by the County Board of Elections by July 14. Ballots returned in-person must be received by 8 pm, July 7.

CDC guidelines for polling place safety and sanitation will be followed. Voters who vote at polling places will vote using a paper provisional ballot. Voters with disabilities may vote on ADA-accessible voting machines. 

Voters will not receive sample ballots but will receive notification of their polling locations. Voters cannot return voted vote-by-mail ballots to polling places.
