FREEHOLD, NJ – Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon is reminding residents that the Primary Election is on June 5, 2018 and that early voting is possible.

“Voting by Mail is an available option for all registered voters,” said Hanlon. “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.

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 in Freehold 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 Tuesday, May 29.

Voters may also apply in person at the County Clerk’s Elections Office located at 300 Halls Mill Road in Freehold up 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.
