Disabled Voter’s Guide
In light of the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Governor Murphy passed Executive Order 105 on March 19, 2020 which stated the following:
The Annual School and May Municipal Elections will be held on May 12, 2020 and will solely be conducted via Vote-by-Mail Ballots. To ensure the safety of all voters and election staff, there will not be any physical polling locations on Election Day. Under this directive, the Office of the Hudson County Clerk is required to send all registered voters a Vote-by-Mail Ballot. For the purpose of the certification that you must sign stating that you applied for this ballot, please be advised that Executive Order 105 acts as your application.
If you want to participate in the Annual School and/or May Municipal Elections, you must use the enclosed Vote-by-Mail ballot. If you have a disability and need an accessible ballot, please call 201-369-3470 to request an electronic ballot or to gain access to an in-person accessible voting device.
As per Executive Order 105, the Hudson County Clerk’s Office has provided a postage paid envelope for the return of your ballot. You are not required to attach a stamp.
We have included detailed instructions on how to complete your Vote-by-Mail Ballot. Please mail the ballot to the County Board of Elections as soon as possible. All ballots must be postmarked no later than May 12, 2020, and received by the County Board of Elections no later 8 p.m., May 14, 2020.
If you have any questions you may call our office at 201-369-3470. Please use alternative methods to seal your ballot return envelopes, such as a wet sponge or cloth.
Please mail back your ballot as soon as possible.
