In 2020 the General Election date is November 3, when candidates for President, the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and County and local officials stand for election.
Mercer County municipalities also have November 3 elections for Mayors, local governing bodies such as Township Committees and Borough Councils, local Boards of Education, and Fire Districts.
In New Jersey, the election will be conducted primarily by mail-in ballots.
All active, registered New Jersey voters will be sent a mail-in ballot automatically, whether they have requested vote by mail or not.
Voted mail-in ballots may be returned by U.S. Mail (postage prepaid), deposited in secure ballot drop boxes throughout Mercer County, or returned in person at a designated polling place on Election Day.
Voters who go to the polls on Election Day will be able to vote by provisional ballot or in a voting machine (by machine only if the voter is disabled.)
Mail-in ballots must be postmarked or deposited in ballot drop boxes no later than 8 PM on November 3 and received by the Board of Election by November 10 to be counted.
