Those who intend to vote in person are reminded to follow all safety guidelines, including wearing a mask and practicing social distancing.

Of course, New Jerseyans have other options to vote this year. Those who are eligible may submit their ballots via secure drop box by 8 p.m. on Nov. 3 or via United States Postal Service with a postmark on or before Nov. 3.
