Frequently Asked Questions

Answers are from Mercer County Clerk’s office (MCC) and Mercer County Board of Elections (MCBOE)

Can I take my ballot to the polls?
MCC: Yes. The polls will be open until 8pm on election day and you can take your properly completed and sealed ballot there and drop it off. You also can take it to the Board of Elections at 1440 Parkside Avenue in Ewing.

How often will ballots be picked up? 
MCBOE: The ballot boxes will be emptied every day and we are awaiting direction from NJ Division of Elections as to pick-up for Saturday & Sunday.   

Will there be cameras to ensure no one messes with the boxes? 
MCC: Primary Election boxes were all under 24-hour surveillance.
MCBOE: Yes, all drop boxes are under surveillance 24/7 – it’s a requirement for installation/location. 

I’d like to know more about who will be retrieving ballots from drop off boxes. I’ve read that in some states 2 people go together, with one from each party. 
MCBOE: The drop boxes are opened, and the ballots are transported back to the Board of Elections, by the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office and representatives from the Board of Election.  

What is the last day I can put my ballot in a dropbox?
You can vote use the dropbox until polls close on election day, November 3, 2020.
