In 2021 the General Election date is November 2, when candidates for Governor, the State Senate, the State Assembly, and County and local Officials stand for election.
Mercer County municipalities also have November 2 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 primarily IN-PERSON — you will be able to vote in person at your assigned polling location. Vote by Mail remains available of course. Important however, Vote by Mail Ballots will not be automatically sent to all registered voters, only to those on the permanent list to receive a mail ballot.
In-person early voting IS BRAND NEW in New Jersey this November election. Early Voting will take place Saturday, October 23 through Sunday, October 31. Hours will be Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Mail-In Ballots must be postmarked on or before 8:00 p.m. November 2 and be received by your county’s Board of Elections on or before November 8.
