Sample ballots now available on Mercer County Clerk’s website

Sample ballots for the Nov. 3 general election are now available for online viewing.

The sample ballots for Mercer County’s 12 municipalities can be accessed by visiting the Mercer County Clerk’s website and are listed by municipality.

All registered voters in New Jersey will receive a mail-in ballot. If you do not receive a ballot, contact your county clerk’s office. Mail-in voters have the option of mailing ballots in via the U.S. Postal Service, returning the completed ballots to their polling places on Election Day, dropping the mail-in ballot off at the Mercer County Board of Elections by Nov. 3 before the polls close, or placing the mail-in ballots in one of the secure drop boxes throughout the county. The Princeton drop box is located in front of the municipal building at 400 Witherspoon Street. The complete list of drop off locations for each county is available from your county clerk. Mercer County has 15 locations across the county. People who wish to vote in person at the polls can do so on Nov. 3 but must cast provisional ballots. Only people with disabilities will be able to cast a ballot by machine on election day. The polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. on election day.

“As your County Clerk, I am charged with preparing the General Election ballot. I urge voters to go to our website and read their sample ballots carefully,” said Mercer County Clerk Paula Sollami Covello.  “There’s understating the importance of this election. The Presidency and several Congressional seats are up for grabs, but so too are important state and local races.”

  1. This sample seems to be for machine voting. Unfortunately the County does not show what the mail-in ballot for Princeton looks like, i.e., what’s on the back and what on the front. I have heard that the Bd of Ed candidates and/or the ballot questions will be on the reverse somehow. I sure hope not, as the BoE is our only contested local election this year.
