The State announced that the June 8 Primary Election will be held primarily In-Person, and residents will be able to vote in-person on voting machines at their respective polling place on Election Day.

Primary Election Day is Tuesday June 8 with polls open from 6 A.M. to 8 P.M. That means that Voting by Mail Ballots will not be automatically mailed out to all registered voters.

If a voter wishes to Vote by Mail, they must apply for a Ballot, unless they already previously have requested to receive a Vote by Mail Ballot for all future elections. A registered voter may apply for a ballot by completing a Vote by Mail Application and mailing it by June1, or returning it by June 7 at 3 P.M. in person to the County Clerk’s office at 209 South Broad Street, Trenton.

A Vote by Mail Application can be obtained on the NJ Division of Elections website at, or by contacting your Municipal Clerk. Any voter can choose to vote by mail without any reason.

The Last Day to Register to Vote in the June 8 Primary Election is Tuesday, May 18. For individuals who wish to Vote by Mail, the deadline to apply is Tuesday, June 1 by mail and Monday, June 7 by 3 P.M. in person. Mail ballots must be received by Mercer County by Election Day. There are several Drop Boxes for Mail Ballots, including in front of the Municipal Court Building at 80 One Mile Road. Questions can be directed to the municipal clerk's office at (609) 443-4000, ext. 237.

For the November 2 General Election, the State has enacted Early In-Person Voting requirements. Those details as to when and where are being formulated and will be released later in the year.
