Primary Election

Chester Borough voters: If you need to go to your polling location to vote by provisional ballot, the location is 50 North Road, Chester Borough. Please disregard the location printed on the Official Primary Election Notice you received in the mail.

The primary election has been postponed to July 7, 2020 due to COVID-19. Read more about the changes and take note of the new voter registration and party affiliation change deadlines!

As per Executive Order 144, every registered Republican and Democratic voter will automatically be mailed a vote-by-mail ballot for the July 7 Primary Election. Unaffiliated/Undeclared voters will receive an application to request a vote-by-mail ballot. The election will be primarily a vote-by-mail election, with a limited number of consolidated polling places.

If you have a disability and need an accessible ballot, vote at a polling place on election day, where you’ll be given a headset and accessible device to allow you to cast your votes.

All other voters are strongly encouraged to vote by mail. If you come to a polling place, you will only be allowed to vote using a provisional (paper) ballot.

For more information about vote-by-mail, read this helpful Primary Election FAQ from the County Clerk’s office.

Candidate petitions: Visit the State of New Jersey’s candidate petitions page for information on where to email or mail-in petitions.
