Earlier this year, a new state law was passed mandating early in person voting in New Jersey. This new option allows registered voters to cast their ballots in person, using a voting machine, during a nine day period prior to Election Day. Beginning this month, in addition to our two traditional voting methods, which include in person on election day at your neighborhood polling location or by mail-in ballot, you now have the option of voting early in person on a voting machine prior to Election Day, from October 23rd to October 31st, at a Monmouth County early voting designated polling site.
Beginning with the 2021 General Election, Monmouth County will have 10 specially designated early in person voting locations that will be open Saturday, October 23rd through Sunday, October 31st. The hours of operation will be Monday to Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Sundays, 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Voters can go to any one of these 10 locations during the nine day period to vote, regardless of where they live in the County. The locations for early voting can be found on the Monmouth County Elections website, MonmouthCountyVotes.com. If you have any questions, please contact the County Clerk’s Election Office at 732-431-7790 or visit the MonmouthCountyVotes.com website.
