County clerk reminds residents they can vote by mail for June 5 primary election

Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon is reminding residents the primary election is on June 5 and that early voting is possible.

“Voting by Mail is an available option for all registered voters,” Hanlon said. “Any registered voter can vote by mail for any reason, and every valid vote cast by mail will be included in the election results. Residents do not need an excuse to vote by mail and they do not have to worry that their vote will not be counted.”

Vote by Mail ballots for the June 5 primary election are now available, according to a press release.

Voters can complete a Vote by Mail application, which can be obtained from the
county clerk’s elections website at www.MonmouthCountyVotes.com or by
downloading the free Monmouth County Votes Mobile App.

Voters can obtain an application in person by visiting the county clerk’s elections office at 300 Halls Mill Road, Freehold Township, or the municipal clerk of their hometown.

Applications to Vote by Mail that are sent by U.S. Mail must be received by the
county clerk’s elections office seven days before an election. For the June 5 primary
election, that date is May 29, according to the press release.

Voters may also apply in person at the county clerk’s elections office at 300 Halls Mill Road, Freehold Township, until 3 p.m. the day before the election. Simple instructions for completing and returning Vote by Mail ballots are included in the ballot package.

Voters with additional questions about voting by mail may call the Election Division at 732-431-7790 or email ClerkofElections@co.monmouth.nj.us
