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.
Mail In Ballots may be returned by:
- Postage paid return mail

When & Where to Vote
Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. The sample ballot you receive in the mail informs you of your polling location and gives you a chance to become familiar with the ballot. Your County Superintendent or Board of Elections can also provide you with information. Polls are busiest between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. so try to vote early.
Letter from the Superintendent
Welcome to the website of the Superintendent of Elections. As Superintendent of Elections for Burlington County I oversee a staff that is available to answer any voter registration questions. We are one of 21 counties tied into a State Wide Voter Registration System. This enables us to transfer voters and their voting record, from other counties within the state.
Our goal is to register voters in a timely manner and help all eligible voters to vote. We have included information concerning many topics related to voting on this website. Even though the information is very comprehensive, we are available to answer any questions you might have.
