Governor Murphy Announces November’s General Election Will Be Conducted Mostly Through Mail-In Ballots

After the success with a largely vote by mail primary, Governor Murphy announced Friday August 14th that the general election will also be a hybrid, with automatic mailing of ballots to all voters and limited in-person voting options.

Here are the key highlights from this CNBC article:

  • New Jersey will send mail-in ballots to all registered voters for the 2020 presidential election while still offering the option for voters to cast their ballots in person, Gov. Phil Murphy said Friday.
  • “It doesn’t matter what party you’re in, everybody gets a ballot,” Murphy announced in a CNN interview.
  • The Democratic governor’s embrace of a plan for statewide mail-in voting comes as President Donald Trump has aggressively sought to undermine that voting model, claiming the potential for fraud.

Vote by mail and voting information will continue to be updated in the Voting section of the MDC website.
