LIVINGSTON, NJ — Livingston residents are reminded that the primary election is being held this Tuesday, July 7, almost exclusively by mail-in ballot.

Per Gov. Phil Murphy's executive order, every registered Republican and Democratic voter was automatically mailed a vote-by-mail (VBM) ballot, and all unaffiliated/undeclared voters were mailed an application to request a VBM ballot.

All residents are urged to use their VBM ballot. Provisional ballots are counted last and must be checked against the VBM Ballots that have already been cast before they are accepted and canvassed.
