The Primary Election in New Jersey is a semi-closed election, per State law. Voters who are already affiliated with the Republican or Democratic Party can vote only in that party’s primary election. Unaffiliated voters may participate in the partisan primary of their choice.
Unaffiliated voters can vote at their polling locations by indicating which political party’s primary election they would like to vote in. Unaffiliated voters who vote by mail will receive mail-in ballots for both political parties and must then choose which ballot to vote, and vote only the ONE ballot.
Please be advised that unaffiliated voters who vote in the primary election will automatically have their voter registration status changed from Unaffiliated to either Republican or Democrat (whichever ballot has been chosen). Voters may, at a later time, change their registration status back to unaffiliated or to another political party.

For questions, please contact the Superintendent of Election’s Office at 732-431-7780.
Please note that municipal clerks rather than the County Clerk certify these results. Also note that tie votes create vacancies.
