BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- In order to prevent any confusion and educate residents about the July primary, Mayor Michael Venezia, Municipal Clerk Louise Palagano and County Clerk Chris Durkin will be holding a virtual voter information session on Wednesday, June 10 at 5:00pm. As a result of COVID-19, the July New Jersey primary will be conducted almost entirely by mail.
“It is the priority of our township to ensure that every resident is able to exercise their constitutional right to vote in this upcoming primary election,” said Mayor Michael Venezia. “We will have multiple polling stations open in case a resident has an issue that arises while trying to vote though because of COVID-19 we encourage residents to vote by mail if they can.”
