Postcards telling voters where to vote may not arrive until after Election Day

By David Wildstein, June 30 2020 4:32 pm

Some voters may not receive a instructions on where they can cast in-person votes by provisional ballot for next week’s primary election until after the polls have closed.

The U.S. Postal Service told state and local election officials on Monday that bulk mail could take up to ten days to be delivered, even if it carries the Official Election Mail indicia.

Several counties did not mail the postcard providing voters with their polling location until Monday.

The post office will not deliver mail on Saturday in observance of the Independence Day holiday.

“Bob Giles lost his shit on that one, one source told the New Jersey Globe in reference to the director of the state Division of Elections.  “He was not happy with the postal guy for saying that.”

While the July 7 primary is being conducted primary through vote-by-mail ballots, voters can be cast in-person at a limited number of polling locations.

While only voters requiring special assistant may vote by machine, provisional ballots may be used by voters who did not vote by mail.

Voters may locate their polling location on the state Division of Elections website.
