A Middlesex County town has been named one of the most voter-friendly cities in the country.
The insurance website Insurify says that New Brunswick provides easy and accessible voting for the 2020 election. The site says that New Brunswick has an easy mail-in voting infrastructure, historical voter turnout and many post office locations and mail services available. This is despite the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“There were fewer locations right now because of the COVID, but it seems like people are finding their way here pretty good,” said New Brunswick resident Robert Porter.
New Brunswick residents say that they have a desire to have an impact in this year’s election.
“It’s one of the responsibilities for every United States citizen to come in today,” said Victor Matamoros.
"No matter what side you're on, this is an important election and you have to do what you have to do,” said Porter.
And this year’s election even brought out some first-time voters.
"That's why I'm here today, because I didn't think that it mattered, but I learned and understood it really does matter. And your votes matter too,” said Elijah Holloway, who voted for the first time.
New Brunswick landed No. 11 on Insurify’s list. The top three cities are Bethesda and Silver Springs in Maryland and San Rafael in California.
