Early voting for New Jersey’s presidential primary began on Wednesday.
Early voting was introduced by the state in 2021 in order to make voting more accessible.
"Over the last couple of years, it's become more a part of new Jersey's voting culture,” said Union County Board of Elections official Nicole DiRado.
In Union County, all 370,000 registered voters are eligible to vote early. Many people choose to do so if they can't make it on Election Day but still want to participate in person.
"Since this is a presidential election, we anticipate it's going to be incredibly busy because everybody wants to make sure they get their vote and their choice in,” said DiRado.
