(Camden, NJ) – Gov. Phil Murphy has issued an executive order mandating that county Clerk’s
Office send vote-by-mail ballots to all registered Democratic and Republican voters ahead of the
state’s July 7 th primary election.
The order also requires county Clerk’s Office to send vote-by-mail applications to all unaffiliated
and inactive voters and that each municipality in the state has at least one polling place for
disabled voters only. At polling locations, poll workers will be required to wears masks and
gloves, social distancing of at least six feet apart for voters will be enforced and protocols will be
in place for the continuous sanitization of areas that are regularly touched.
“There’s no reason to force our residents, particularly seniors and others with medical conditions
that make them more vulnerable to the coronavirus, to choose between their health and their right
to vote,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli Jr. “Voting by mail ensures that no one has to
make that choice, and we strongly encourage Camden County residents to take advantage of easy
and convenient voting by mail.”
