IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR BURLINGTON COUNTY PRIMARY ELECTION VOTERS
In light of the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Governor Murphy signed Executive Order 144 on May 15, 2020 which states:
The Primary Election will be held on July 7, 2020 and will be conducted using Vote-by-Mail Ballots.
Ballots will be sent to ALL Active Registered Republican and Democrat voters. These voters DO NOT need to apply to vote by mail in the July 7 Primary Election.
Unaffiliated voters (not registered as any political party) AND, Inactive Republican and Democrat voters will be automatically sent a Vote By Mail Application. The application will be specifically for the July 7 Primary Election as it will require unaffiliated voters to declare which party they want to vote for and will serve as an affirmation of residence for inactive voters.
