Vote By Mail Instructions and Information

Update on Vote By Mail

Dear Harding Friends,

As per our previous email, on Friday, May 15th, Governor Murphy issued Executive Order No. 144 mandating that the upcoming July 7th primary shall be conducted primarily as Vote By Mail.

If you are a registered Republican or Democrat, you should have already received your vote by mail ballot. If you have not received it, please contact Ann Grossi's office at 973-285-6066.

The Harding Township Republican Club has issued illustrated instructions for filling out your ballot. See Also, when filling out the ballot, be careful how it is filled out or it could be rejected. For more specifics on things to do and things to avoid, see our VBM Basics page: The Harding Township Republican Club in conjunction with Ann Grossi's office also held a Vote By Mail Webinar on June 15th, which was recorded and is available at .

These ballots will include prepaid postage, so a voter need only fill it out and send it back to the County Clerk via mail. However, to ensure there are no mail delays and that your vote is counted, it is advisable to drop your ballot at a ballot drop box. Morris County has 5 drop box locations as listed on our Ballot Boxes page. The one in Madison is behind the police department and looks like this:

The County Clerk will also send vote-by-mail applications to “Active” voters who are registered as “Unaffiliated,” and to all “Inactive” registered Democrats, Republicans, and “Unaffiliated” voters. Presumably, these applications will allow you to declare a party and vote in a primary by applying for a mail in ballot. These applications will also include prepaid postage, and must be returned and received byJune 30th.

Any voter who appears at a polling place on the day of the July primary must vote via a provisional ballot, except that a voter with disabilities may vote on an ADA-accessible voting machine.

Every vote-by-mail ballot that is postmarked on or before July 7, 2020, and that is received by July 14, 2020, at 8:00 p.m. shall be considered valid and shall be counted. However, ballots dropped in ballot boxes must be deposited on or before 8 p.m. on Tuesday, July 7th (voting day).

This is certainly uncharted territory and we will continue to monitor this as it develops.Our campaign will be tracking VBM Ballot returns to monitor any issues or irregularities with the process. We want to make sure that every vote is counted! So please take a moment and let us know when you have returned your ballot by email or text to allow us to cross check it with our data. This will allow us to inform you if we do not see your ballot as received.

If you have any questions at all on this new process, don't receive your ballot, or need other assistance, please reach out to us at or (201) 919-8098. We will keep you informed as we gain additional information.

Thank you!
