Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, voting in New Jersey’s general election will look different this year. Here’s what voters need to know:

On Friday, August 14, 2020, Governor Murphy signed Executive Order No. 177 which mandates that the November 3, 2020 general election be conducted primarily via vote-by-mail ballots.

The Sussex County Clerk will mail ballots at the end of September to all “active” registered voters without the need for an application to receive a vote-by-mail ballot.

If you want to participate in the general election, you are encouraged to vote the ballot that is mailed to you. A limited number of polling places will be available for voters on Election Day where voters may vote only by provisional paper ballots or return their own vote-by-mail ballot. If you have a disability and need an accessible vote-by-mail ballot, contact the county clerk’s Election Division at 973.579.0900, ext. 1507, or you may go to your assigned polling place, which will provide you with access to an in-person accessible voting device on Election Day.

Detailed instructions for voting by mail will be included with your ballot packet.

Your packet will also contain a postage paid envelope for the return of your ballot through the United States Postal Service. You are not required to attach a stamp. You may choose instead to deposit your ballot in a secure ballot drop box located throughout the county or present your ballot to a poll worker at your assigned polling place on Election Day. Drop box locations will be provided in your ballot packet, and a post card listing your assigned polling location will be mailed to you no later than October 23, 2020.

Ballots are being mailed to the address at which a voter is registered to vote. If you plan to be out of town between September 25th and Election Day and will not be home when your mail-in ballot arrives, you should notify the county clerk’s office so that arrangements can be made to mail your ballot to an alternate address.

If you have questions about voting by mail, please call the Sussex County Clerk’s Office at 973.579.0900.
