Dear Cumberland County Voters,

Governor Murphy signed Executive Order 144 which makes changes to the 2020 Primary Election to be held on July 7, 2020.

More information will be forthcoming, but our office wanted to keep our county voters informed of the changes.

1)  All ACTIVE registered Democrats and Republicans will receive a Vote by Mail BALLOT that will include prepaid return postage. As long as your ballot is postmarked before July 7 and is delivered to the Board of Elections by the post office by July 14, your vote will be counted.

2) Unaffiliated or inactive voters will receive a Vote by Mail APPLICATION, and will have the option to declare themselves for one of the major parties and participate in the election by mailing in their application, which will also have prepaid postage. They will then be mailed a ballot for the party of their choice and can follow the same steps above to cast their vote.

IMPORTANT: If you are currently a Vote by Mail unaffiliated Voter who signed up to receives ballots for All Future Elections, you will need to fill out the new application declaring your party of choice to receive a Primary Ballot in the mail.

3) Each county will have at least 5 secured Ballot Dropboxes where Vote by Mail ballots can be left. Ballots can also be returned in person at the Board of Elections office. More information will be coming on the locations of the drop boxes.

4) There will be at least 1 polling location in each municipality open on July 7 for voters who are unable to vote by mail. Anyone who needs to use one of these polling places will vote via provisional paper ballot. Proper CDC recommendations and social distancing orders will be in effect at polling places.

A list of Election Day polling locations will be certified on June 15, 2020 and be made public shortly after that.

The deadline to Register to Vote for the Primary Election will remain June 16, 2020.

If you have any questions, please contact our office at 856-453-4860 or the Board of Elections at 856-453-5801 and we will try our best to assist you.

The actual copy of the order can be found here: https://nj.gov/infobank/eo/056murphy/pdf/EO-144.pdf

TRENTON – In an effort to protect all New Jersey voters from the spread of COVID-19, Governor Phil Murphy today signed an executive order to create a modified vote-by-mail election for the July 7th Primary. The order requires that each county’s elections officials send vote-by-mail ballots to all registered Democratic and Republican voters and send VBM ballot applications to unaffiliated and inactive voters. All VBM ballots and VBM ballot applications will come with pre-paid postage.

“No one should have to choose between their health and exercising their right to vote,” said Governor Murphy. “By providing vote-by-mail ballots and applications, New Jersey voters will be able to safely participate in our democracy as the pandemic continues to threaten our public health.”

“As a state at the center of the COVID-19 crisis, New Jersey has to modify to our primary to ensure that our voters have access to free, fair, and safe elections,” said Secretary of State Tahesha Way. “By providing every voter access to a vote by mail ballot, we are protecting our residents and democracy. As our state embarks on the road to recovery, voters will have the opportunity to choose our leaders without risking their health.”

The order also requires opening a minimum of at least one polling place in each municipality, and provided that there are enough poll workers, a minimum of 50 percent of polling places in each county to provide New Jersey voters who may need access to in-person voting opportunities. Polling locations will be required to follow public health standards including ensuring six feet of distance, requiring poll workers to wear face coverings and gloves, frequent sanitization of high-touch areas, and providing sanitization materials to all individuals at a polling place.

Copy of Executive Order No. 144
