Community: INFORMATION FOR PRIMARY ELECTION DAY – JUNE 6, 2017


City of Hoboken announces:



Dear MSV readers,

The Primary Election in New Jersey will be held on Tuesday, June 6, 2017. The Republican and Democratic primary elections include candidates for Governor, State Senator, General Assembly, County Clerk, Freeholder, and State Committee. The Democratic primary also includes the election of members for the County Committee. Registered, unaffiliated voters may vote in either primary by declaring their party affiliation at the polls.

Polls open at 6:00am and close at 8:00pm. If you are in line by 8:00pm, whether the line is inside or outside of the polling location, you have the right to remain in line and vote.

FIND YOUR POLLING LOCATION

KNOW YOUR VOTING DISTRICT
Several polling locations include multiple voting districts, each with a separate line and voting machine. To determine your district and save time at the polls, check the sample ballot you received in the mail or refer to the Hoboken Ward map: www.hobokennj.gov/docs/clerk/HobokenWardMap.pdf
