Incorrect information is being distributed on social media regarding Mail-In ballots and the upcoming General Election on November 3, 2020, here is clarification:

Just because you received a mail-in ballot for the Primary Election in July, DOES NOT mean you are automatically going to receive a mail-in ballot for future elections.  Should the Governor mandate an ALL mail-in ballot election for November, THEN you would automatically receive that mail-in ballot.

Normally, the only registered voters who would automatically receive a mail-in ballot for the November 3rd election are those who completed an application to receive a mail-in ballot in past elections AND checked off the box to receive a mail-in ballot “FOR ALL FUTURE ELECTIONS”.  If you want to confirm whether or not you are automatically signed-up to receive a mail-in ballot for "ALL FUTURE ELECTIONS", call or email the Township of Verona's Municipal Clerk's office (info above) or the County Clerks office at 973-621-4922.

When posting about the upcoming General Election, please post only factual information.  Rumors and misinformation only serve to confuse voters.
