Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon today posted a form on her website for voters to use if they want to opt-out of the automatic Vote-By-Mail law recently signed by Governor Phil Murphy.
The new law requires that any voter who voted by mail in 2016, the last presidential election, automatically be sent Vote-By-Mail ballots in all future elections unless they opt-out in writing.
Voters who do not opt-out in writing will not be able cast their vote in a voting machine. They will be able to cast a provisional ballot if they show up at the polling location to vote and find that their name is not in the book.
The form, which we are posting below, should be printed out, signed and mailed or emailed by September 14…this Friday.
