This is a press release from Bloomfield Township. Press releases are official statements that have not been independently verified.
Per Governor Murphy’s executive order no. 177, voting in the upcoming election will be conducted primarily by mail-in ballot. Paper provisional ballots will be available at polling sites for those who have not completed their mail-in ballots and choose to vote at their designated polling place. This location may be a different polling place for this election.
Residents may also drop off their ballots at their polling place if they would like. All voters will get a postcard in the mail from Essex County 10 days prior to Election Day with your designated polling place. On-site voting on November 3 will be available to persons with physical impairments that require specialized voting equipment. Only individuals with a qualifying disability will have access to these ADA-compliant voting machines.
“We encourage residents that are able to, to vote by mail when they receive their ballot,” said Mayor Venezia. “However, if you are unable to vote by mail for some reason, please go to your polling location on Election Day and ask to vote provisionally with a paper ballot.”
