Based on your past voting history and previous Vote by Mail applications on file, you will automatically receive Vote by Mail Ballots for All Future Elections . The option of All General (November) Elections or All Elections in a Calendar Year no longer exists. The options are now a Specific Single Election or to automatically receive All Future Elections. If you have any questions regarding your status, please contact the Hunterdon County Clerk at (908)788-1214.

If you are an Unaffiliated Voter and would like to vote in a primary election, you must declare your party affiliation.
You can declare your party affiliation prior to the election. Additionally, an unaffiliated voter can affiliate with the Democratic or Republican Party on the day of the primary and then may then vote with a provisional ballot. You will not be able to vote on the machine.
