FREEHOLD, NJ – Some voters who have voted by mail in Monmouth County and throughout the State of New Jersey have had their ballots returned to them by the Post Office. Although many ballots have already been properly returned to the Board of Elections, in some instances, the Postal Service scanners have been picking up our tracking label on the return address as the “mail to” address. County Clerks throughout the state have been in contact with the United States Postal Service regarding these issues. The Postal Service is working closely with us and we have been communicating with them to resolve these issues. Voters are advised that to return the ballot, they can just put the ballot back in the mail. No additional postage is necessary.
You can contact our office immediately if you have any difficulty returning your ballot. If requested, the County Clerk’s Office will send you a new envelope for your use. You can also verify your ballot has been received by calling the Board of Elections at 732-431-7802 or you may contact the County Clerk’s Office at 732-431-7790. We apologize for any inconvenience.
