2020 vote

Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon is advising Monmouth County voters that Governor Phil Murphy has announced major changes to the Nov. 3 General Election process due to the COVID-19 Public Health situation. Similarly to the July Primary Election, the General Election will be conducted primarily by mail-in ballots with limited polling locations open for voting on paper provisional ballots only.  Full Press Release

Voting will be held at the Avon Gym located at 301 Main. St., between 6 AM - 8 PM.  Voters have the option to vote early and cast their vote by use of a mail-in ballot or to vote in-person on the November 3, 2020 election day on a provisional paper ballot at their designated General Election polling locations.  Only voters who are disabled or who need an accessible voting device to vote may vote through an accessible voting device at their polling locations.  Your ballot will include a return postage-paid envelope, (no stamp necessary) which will be included in the VBM Ballot packet that you will receive. You may mail your ballot through the US Postal Service, deposit your ballot in one of the secure drop boxes located throughout the county, deliver your ballot directly to the Board of Elections, or on Election Day return it at your designated polling location.  If you do return your VBM Ballot the day of the election you may not return any other voter’s ballot. 

The Monmouth County Board of Elections has created an animated video that gives all of the information about this year's election and how to vote by mail.  Click here to view video:
