IMPORTANT NOTICES

NOVEMBER GENERAL ELECTION INFORMATION

 

Last Updated: 09/7/2020

The November 3rd General Election will primarily be held through vote-by-mail. All active registered New Jersey voters will automatically receive a prepaid return-postage vote-by-mail ballot from their County Clerks. All ballots will be mailed by Monday, October 5th.

Voters can choose to:

  • mail in their ballot
  • return their ballot through a secure dropbox
  • hand their ballot directly to a poll worker at a polling place on Election Day
  • vote in-person

All ballots being returned through the US Postal Service must carry a postmark by November 3rd, and be received by the County Clerk no later than 8 p.m. Tuesday, November 10th. Ballots which lack postmarks due to postal error received by 8 p.m. Thursday, November 5th will also be considered valid.

To track your mail-in ballot, visit the New Jersey Voter Registration System online and create an account if you don't already have one. You can also call your County Election Officials to track your mail-in ballot.

County boards of election will also establish ballot drop boxes in each county at least 45 days before election.

Any voter who chooses to cast their vote in-person will do so on a provisional ballot. Individuals with disabilities will have access to an ADA-conforming voting machine. Each municipality will be required to open at least one in-person polling site, and all counties must ensure that at least 50 percent of their total polling places are open.

For more information, visit the New Jersey Division of Elections.

TAX News = GOOD News:  No increase this year

 

2020/21 Tax rate (2.983) vs. 2019/20 tax rate (2.981) = Average tax rate of 2.98

 

This is the 3rd consecutive year with the same overall tax rate of 2.98

For various reasons, Covid-19 included, estimated bills were used for the August 1 payments (2020 3rd quarter). 

Because these estimates were high, the 4th quarter billing will be lower than last year’s 4th quarter to compensate.

Final billings will come well in advance of the November 1 payment.

 

2020 MEMORIAL DAY CEREMONY

The Memorial Day Ceremony that was originally postponed until Labor Day is now officially cancelled do to the COVID restrictions on public gatherings.
