Due to COVID-19, the 2020 General Election will be
Primarily A Vote-By-Mail Election.
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? All registered voters will automatically receive a ballot to vote by mail from Essex County.  We encourage all residents to take advantage of this opportunity to vote by mail.  Ballots can also be placed in one of the SECURE DROP BOXES* provided by Essex County.
WHAT IF I DIDN’T RECEIVE MY MAIL IN BALLOT? Use the link below to request a second Vote by Mail Ballot for the Essex County Clerk.

CAN I STILL VOTE IN PERSON? Yes, both the Glen Ridge Train Station and the Women's Club will be open for in person voting.  Face coverings are recommended, and social distancing will be monitored and practiced to ensure the safety of all voters and poll workers.  Please be advised all voters voting at the polling place in-person will be voting by provisional ballot.  

WHAT IS A PROVISIONAL BALLOT? A provisional ballot is a paper ballot used to cast your vote  It will look very similar to your vote by mail ballot.  Provisional ballots are counted after the election when it has been determined you have not already voted by mail.
