MERCER COUNTY, NJ - Mercer County Clerk Paula Sollami Covello has announced that due to COVID-19 precautions the Mercer County Clerk’s Office will hold a virtual ballot drawing to determine candidate's ballot placement for the 2020 General Election.

The drawing will be live-streamed on Monday, August 10 at 3:00 p.m. on the Mercer County Clerk’s Facebook page. Mercer County Deputy Clerk Walker Worthy, Jr. will be conducting the drawing.   

While these drawings are normally open to the public, thought largely unattended except for by candidates, Mercer County offices remain closed due to the ongoing pandemic. Holding the drawing on Facebook Live will ensure that the public will be able to watch the drawing uninterrupted.
