Dear Monmouth County Residents:

Executive Order No. 120 signed by Governor Phil Murphy last week, has postponed the 2020 Primary Election from June 2 to July 7, in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The Executive Order includes the postponement of the primary for President, the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, county and municipal elections, as well as political party county committee elections in Monmouth County.

All statutory election deadlines have changed and are now calculated by using the July 7 election date. This did not affect any deadlines that occurred prior to April 11, with the exception of the deadline for the change of party affiliation which was moved via the Executive Order from April 8 to May 13.

Based on the new Primary Election date of July 7, the voter registration deadline for the election will be June 16 and the deadline to apply for a Mail-In Ballot by mail will be June 30.

The Primary Election timeline with revised deadlines from the State Division of Elections is now available on our Elections Website at and on our free Monmouth County Votes Mobile App.

Any questions regarding the Primary Election can be directed to the County Clerk’s Elections Division at 732-431-7790 or [email protected].



Christine Giordano Hanlon, Esq.

Monmouth County Clerk
