The Middlesex County Clerk’s Office will be open for extended hours to process Vote-By-Mail applications and ballots for the upcoming general election.

The hours will be 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Oct. 29, and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Nov. 2.

The office is located on the 4th Floor of the Middlesex County Administration Building, 75 Bayard Street, New Brunswick.

Voters will be able to fill out applications for a Vote-By-Mail ballot and vote the ballot in the same visit. Voters who complete their ballots during these two days only can leave their completed ballots at the Clerk’s Office for delivery by staff to the Middlesex County Board of Elections.

All other Vote-By-Mail ballots must be dropped off to the Middlesex County Board of Elections by the close of polls on Election Day, November 5. The Board of Elections is located at 11 Kennedy Boulevard, East Brunswick.

Voters who wish to send their Vote-By-Mail ballots through the mail must ensure they are postmarked no later than Nov. 5. These mailed ballots must be received at the Board of Elections 48 hours after polls close.

“One of the most important rights we have is the right to vote. That is why Middlesex County has embraced a Vote-By-Mail initiative to help those who cannot make it to the polls on November 5,” said County Clerk Elaine M. Flynn. “The extended office hours ease the process of voting even more.”

Voters may visit the Clerk’s Office during normal business hours to apply for a Vote-by-Mail ballot: 8:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., Monday through Friday. The deadline to apply for a Vote-By-Mail ballot in person is Nov. 4 at 3 p.m. Voters must then mail or drop off the voted ballot to the Board of Elections before the deadlines stated above.
