NJ residents don’t need to request a mail-in ballot, despite notices sent by Postal Service
A postcard sent out by the United States Postal Service about mail-in ballots has left some New Jersey residents confused.
The postcard sent out to all registered voters across the country stated that voters would need to request mail-in ballots 15 days before the Nov. 3 election.
But Somerset County Clerk Steve Peter says that this is not the case in New Jersey, where ballots will be sent to all registered voters.
“No application is needed. The only time they need to get in touch with my office is if they don’t get the ballots, say by Oct. 10. Contact their country clerk to let them know,” Peter says.
Some states like Colorado are going to court to block the Postal Service from distributing the mailers on the grounds that it is misleading to voters.
