All other Vote-By-Mail ballots must be received or dropped off to the Middlesex County Board of Elections by the close of polls on Election Day, Nov. 7. The Board of Elections is located at 11 Kennedy Blvd., East Brunswick, NJ.

“These extended hours will help our residents, especially those who work during our regular office hours, to exercise their right to vote,” said County Clerk Elaine M. Flynn. “These measures have helped many people to let their voice be heard, and we are happy to be able to offer assistance.”

“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 onNov. 7,” said Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios. “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. 6. Voters must then mail or drop off the voted ballot to the Board of Elections before the deadline.
